Description of the Code

Whisky relies on a number of thorns which are in different stages of development. Here we give a basic overview of the thorns available in the public version.

Whisky

Provides the hydro variables and the evolution routines. Calculates stress energy terms for a spacetime evolution routine.

Whisky_Init_Data

Provides some simple initial data, such as shock tubes, that can be used to test the code.

Whisky_TOVSolverC

Provides initial data for hydro and spacetime variables for a TOV star.

Whisky_IVP

Given an initial guess for a solution of Einstein's equations with matter this thorn uses BAM to solve the York-Lichnerowicz initial value problem. Normally used for perturbations of solutions generated by TOV_SolverC.
