SkyNet: A modular nuclear reaction network library

By Jonas (5432384) Lippuner and Luke F. (5304355) Roberts

Abstract

<p>This is the version of the SkyNet code used in http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2017arXiv170606198L. The latest version of the code is available at https://bitbucket.org/jlippuner/skynet</p> <p>SkyNet is a new general-purpose nuclear reaction network that evolves the abundances of nuclear species under the influence of nuclear reactions. SkyNet can be used to compute the nucleosynthesis evolution in all astrophysical scenarios where nucleosynthesis occurs. SkyNet is free and open-source and aims to be easy to use and flexible. Any list of isotopes can be evolved and SkyNet supports various different types of nuclear reactions. SkyNet is modular so that new or existing physics, like nuclear reactions or equations of state, can easily be added or modified.</p
