[submitted] SASRST: Semi-Analytic Solutions for 1-D Radiative Shock Tubes

This small collection of Python scripts attempts to reproduce the semi-analytical one-dimensional equilibrium and non-equilibrium radiative shock tube solutions of Lowrie & Rauenzahn (2007, Shock Waves, 16, 445-453) and Lowrie & Edwards (2008, Shock Waves, 18, 129-143), respectively. The included code not only calculates the solution for a given set of input parameters, but also plots the results (using Matplotlib). This software was written to provide validation for numerical radiative shock tube solutions produced by a radiation hydrodynamics code, as exemplified in Ramsey & Dullemond (2015, A&A, 574, A81).
