Abstract

We report on the development of a new stellar evolution code, and provide a taste of results, showing its capability to calculate full evolutionary tracks for a wide range of masses and metalicities. The code is fast and efficient, and is capable of following through all evolutionary phases, including core/shell flashes and thermal pulses, without any interruption or intervention. It is meant to be used also in the context of modeling the evolution of dense stellar systems, for performing live calculations for both 'normal' ZAMS/PRE-MS models, but mainly for 'non-canonical' stellar configurations (i.e. merger-products). We show a few examples of evolutionary calculations for stellar populations I and II, and for masses in the range 0.25-64 MȮ.
