AIMS (Asteroseismic Inference on a Massive Scale) estimates stellar parameters and credible intervals/error bars in a Bayesian manner from a set of seismic frequency data and so-called classic constraints. To achieve reliable parameter estimates and computational efficiency it searches through a grid of pre-computed models using an MCMC algorithm; interpolation within the grid of models is performed by first tessellating the grid using a Delaunay triangulation and then doing a linear barycentric interpolation on matching simplexes. Inputs for the modeling consists of individual frequencies from peak-bagging, which can be complemented with classic spectroscopic constraints.
SPInS (Stellar Parameters INferred Systematically) provides the age, mass, and radius of a star, among other parameters, from a set of photometric, spectroscopic, interferometric, and/or asteroseismic observational constraints; it also generates error bars and correlations. Derived from AIMS (ascl:1611.014), it relies on a stellar model grid and uses a Bayesian approach to find the PDF of stellar parameters from a set of classical constraints. The heart of SPInS is a MCMC solver coupled with interpolation within a pre-computed stellar model grid. The code can consider priors such as the IMF or SFR and can characterize single stars or coeval stars, such as members of binary systems or of stellar clusters.
The centrifugal deformation program RUBIS (Rotation code Using Barotropy conservation over Isopotential Surfaces) takes an input 1D model (with spherical symmetry) and returns its deformed version by applying a conservative rotation profile specified by the user. The code needs only the density as a function of radial distance from the reference model in addition to the surface pressure to be imposed to perform the deformation; preserving the relation between density and pressure when going from the 1D to the 2D structure makes this lightness possible. By solving Poisson's equation in spheroidal rather than spherical coordinates whenever a discontinuity is present, RUBIS can deform both stellar and planetary models, thereby dealing with potential discontinuities in the density profile.
