Tip! Refine or expand your search. Authors are sometimes listed as 'Smith, J. K.' instead of 'Smith, John' so it is useful to search for last names only. Note this is currently a simple phrase search.

[ascl:2306.053] TiDE: Light curves and spectra of tidal disruption events

TiDE (TIdal Disruption Event) computes the light curves or spectrum of tidal disruption events. Written in C++, it can compute the monochromatic light curve without diffusion, including the total luminosity, wind luminosity and disk luminosity, and the monochromatic light curve with diffusion. TiDE can also model the bolometric luminosity and calculate the spectrum at a given time, including the wind luminosity and disk luminosity. This code can be used to explore the possible parameter space and reveal potential biases caused by the model assumptions, and can be extended with new models, allowing one to compare and test different prescriptions and model assumptions under the same circumstances.
