DISKMODs: Accretion Disk Radial Structure Models

Abstract: DISKMODs provides radial structure models of accretion disk solutions. The following models are included: Novikov-Thorne thin disk model and Sadowski polytropic slim disk model. Each model implements a common interface that gives the radial dependence of selected geometrical, physical and thermodynamic quantities of the accretion flow. The model interpolates through a set of tabulated numerical solutions. These solutions are computed for a reference mass M=10 M<sub>sun</sub>. The model can rescale the disk structure to any mass, with masses in the range of 5-20 M<sub>sun</sub> giving reasonably good results.
