DYnamics, Age and Metallicity Indicators Tracing Evolution (DYNAMITE)

Abstract: DYNAMITE (DYnamics, Age and Metallicity Indicators Tracing Evolution) is a triaxial dynamical modelling code for stellar systems, which is developed at the University of Vienna. It is based on existing codes for Schwarzschild modelling in triaxial systems. The power and innovation of DYNAMITE lies in the easy-to-use object oriented Python wrapper. This makes it simple to extend the scope of pre-existing triaxial Schwarzschild codes with a number of new features, including (i) discrete kinematics, (ii) more flexible descriptions of line-of-sight velocity distributions, (iii) modelling of stellar population information, (iv) more efficient steps through parameter space, and (v) using GPU acceleration.
