Class Project

Class Project using a stellar evolution code

I would like for students to be able to run their own simulations of stellar evolution - follow a star's life from birth to death. This will require some computer/computing knowledge, UNIX (Linux, MacOS), FORTRAN, graphics software (like Python/matplotlib). The project should use the MESA stellar evolution code.

Possible project

You are welcome to suggest own topics, but need to discuss with me.
