To get an overview on the abilities of a special code, you should have a look into the manual. If you are interested in using a program, please, log into our ftp server where I have stored a number of my codes for free access. If you don't find the program there, I probably do not want to give it away without further response, so please send me an email (ossk at ph1.uni-koeln.de) and we will find a way. In any case, I expect that you acknowledge the use of the program when publishing results.
Following the two fields of my recent research activities, the codes are grouped together into two main domains:
You can read the abstract of the manual as HTML document or the whole manual as dvi file.
Numerous smaller codes written for the exact integration of the velocitiy space to compute improved source functions and to extend the Sobolev approximation for regions with steep density gradients are not yet sufficiently documented to make them publically available.
Unfortunately, I will not have time to continue programming and writing documentation in these fields, since I have to concentrate on the line radiative transfer.
Optics programs: These are especially programs based on different effective medium theories to compute the optical behaviour and scattering properties of inhomogeneous media and programs for the Kramers-Kronig analysis of optical constants or transmission data.
The following codes are available:
Simulations on the structure of coagulated particles: I will not write manuals for these programs because the more recent programs of Ralf Sablotny are more variable and contain much less limitations.
Global coagulation simulations: These are the programs for the simulation of the dust coagulation in dense molecular cloud cores using a two dimensional description of the dust aggregates. For the program SIMNAKED without ice accretion the manual can be accessed as dvi file. Modified versions of these programs for the application in accretion disks can be found with Wolfgang Schmitt.
