The STARS code was originally developed in the 1970's by Peter Eggleton. Over the years, the code has been gradually updated to it's current form. These pages are intended to act as a user guide for the current version (2000) of the code.
For a more detailed view of the physics and principles of the code, see the following references:
A reference to one or more of these (as appropriate) would be appreciated if you find the code useful.
Below are a list of people who have worked on or with the STARS code, most often as PhD students at IoA. Where appropriate, I have indicated their year of graduation, and, where available, their current location (and a link to their website).
For readers of "A more detailed look at the Opacities for Enriched Carbon and Oxygen Mixtures". 2004, MNRAS, 348, 201, astro-ph/0310255 who wish to obtain the code, tables and details of our new tables can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details or click here for the tables and code.
Evolutionary tracks calculated using the STARS code are available here.
