Astrophysics Source Code Library

  title={Astrophysics Source Code Library},
  author={Alice Allen and Kimberly DuPrie and G. Bruce Berriman and Robert J. Hanisch and Jessica Mink and Peter J. Teuben},
The Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL), founded in 1999, is a free on-line registry for source codes of interest to astronomers and astrophysicists. The library is housed on the discussion forum for Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) and can be accessed at this http URL The ASCL has a comprehensive listing that covers a significant number of the astrophysics source codes used to generate results published in or submitted to refereed journals and continues to grow. The ASCL currently has…

STEPAR: an automatic code to infer stellar atmospheric parameters

Context. STEPAR is an automatic code written in Python 3.X designed to compute the stellar atmospheric parameters Teff, log g, [Fe/H], and ξ of FGK-type stars by means of the equivalent width (EW)

Looking before leaping: Creating a software registry

The ASCL was founded in 1999, had a period of dormancy, and was restarted in 2010, and the new editor sought to answer the opening question hoping this would better inform the work to be done.

This paper analyzes software available in Astrophysics Source Code Library, focusing on simulations that include hydrodynamics and uses the citation history of these codes to gauge their impact on the community.

Stellar parameters for the central star of the planetary nebula PRTM 1 using the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory service TheoSSA

The German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (GAVO) developed the registered service TheoSSA (theoretical stellar spectra access) and the supporting registered VO tool TMAW (Tuebingen

FAMA: An automatic code for stellar parameter and abundance determination

Context. The large amount of spectra obtained during the epoch of extensive spectroscopic surveys of Galactic stars needs the development of automatic procedures to derive their atmospheric

Characterizing EoR foregrounds: a study of the Lockman Hole region at 325 MHz

One of the key science goals for the most sensitive telescopes, both current and upcoming, is the detection of the redshifted 21-cm signal from the Cosmic Dawn and Epoch of Reionization. The success

SPECIES II. Stellar parameters of the EXPRESS program giant star sample

As part of the search for planets around evolved stars, we can understand planet populations around significantly higher-mass stars than the Sun on the main sequence. This population is difficult to

Predicting FIR lines from simulated galaxies

Far-infrared (FIR) emission lines are a powerful tool to investigate the properties of the interstellar medium, especially in high-redshift galaxies, where ALMA observations have provided

Derivation of parameters for 3748 FGK stars using H-band spectra from APOGEE Data Release 14

Context. The Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) has observed the H-band spectra of over 200 000 stars with R ∼ 22 000. Aims. The main motivation for this work is to test
