|Manuscript Title: TAU: A 1D radiative transfer code for transmission spectroscopy of extrasolar planet atmospheres|
|Authors: M.D.J. Hollis, M. Tessenyi, G. Tinetti|
|Program title: tau|
|Catalogue identifier: AEPN_v1_1|
Distribution format: tar.gz
|Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 185(2014)695|
|Programming language: C++.|
|Operating system: Linux, Mac.|
|Has the code been vectorised or parallelized?: Yes|
|Keywords: Extrasolar planets, Atmospheric characterisation, Spectroscopy, Radiative transfer.|
External routines: OpenMP (http://openmp.org/wp)
Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes
Nature of problem:
Calculation of molecular absorption, and hence transit depths, as a function of wavelength for stellar radiation passing through planetary atmospheres.
Line-by-line calculation of wavelength-dependent optical depths using absorption cross-sections for various trace molecular absorbers.
Reasons for new version:
Bug found in previous version whereby some values, defined as floats, took values too small to be represented by this datatype, and so were set to zero.
Summary of revisions:
All 'float' datatypes changed to 'double'.
The distribution file contains,
From 0.5 to 500 seconds, depending on run parameters
