Temperature and density grid Specify the limits and the variation step of the state variables:

log T from to
in steps of dex up to , then changing to dex.

log R from to in steps of dex

Chemical composition First choose the reference solar composition, the reference metallicity Zref, and the grid of hydrogen abundance X:

Reference solar composition

Grevesse & Noels (1993)
Grevesse & Sauval (1998)
Holweger (2001)
Lodders (2003)
Grevesse, Asplund & Sauval (2007)
Caffau et al. (2009)

Reference metallicity Zref =

Hydrogen abundance X from to in steps of

Abundances normalization

Choose the normalization of the metal abundances, expressed as either number fractions or mass fractions
&epsiloni: Abundances in number fractions Xi: Abundances in mass fractions

Primordial mixture

In the case of a metal-free mixture, i.e. Zref=0, one can choose a primordial lithium abundance in terms of the ratio Li/H, using either number fractions, εLi/&epsilonH, or mass fractions, XLi/XH (depending on the abundances normalization selected in the previous step):

Lithium abundance Li/H=

Reference mixture with Z=Zref

Then define the kind of reference mixture (keeping Z constant):
scaled-solar mixture A mixture B

Ratios [Xi/XFe] =[&epsiloni/εFe], in dex, keeping the metallicity constant, Z=Zref
Li Be B C N O F Ne Na
Mg Al Si P S Cl Ar K Ca

Sr Y Zr Nb Mo Ru Rh Pd Ag
Cd In Sn Sb Te I Xe Cs Ba
La Ce Pr Nd Sm Eu Gd Tb Dy
Ho Er Tm Yb Lu Hf Ta W Re
Os Ir Pt Au Hg Tl Pb Bi Th
U

Superimposed chemical pattern with Z ≠ Zref

Then define the additional enhancement/depletion factor for any element, in dex:

Abundance variation factor of each element (in dex) relative to the reference mixture: gi=log10(εi)-log10(εi)ref or fi=log10(Xi)-log10(Xi)ref.
The metallicity is not preserved.

(C/O) - C - N variation grid

OPTIONAL: define the grid of abundance variation factors (in dex) of C/O, C, N relative to the reference values:

gCO=log10(εC/εO)-log10(εC/εO)ref
gC=log10(εC)-log10(εC)ref
gN=log10(εN)-log10(εN)ref
OR fCO=log10(XC/XO)-log10(XC/XO)ref
fC=log10(XC)-log10(XC)ref
fN=log10(XN)-log10(XN)ref

gCO or fCO values
gC or fC values
gN or fN values
