The Kuijken-Dubinski Galaxy Modeling Package

We will use the code of Konrad Kuijken and John Dubinski to generate disk-bulge-halo galaxies.

The complete source package is in the tar file galactics.tar.gz .

  • Getting the source and unpacking (no pgplot in tar file)

  • Create directory tree galaxy: gunzip -d -c galaxy.tar.gz | tar xvf -

  • use gfortran for compilation
