The ev/STARS/TWIN code

The "Eggleton code" known as ev, STARS or TWIN has been developed since the 1970's (e.g. Eggleton (et al.) 1971, 1972, 2002, Pols et al. 1995, Eldridge & Tout 2004, Stancliffe et al. 2007, Glebbeek et al. 2008). A specific branch of the code is maintained by people who were at the astrophyscis department at Utrecht University.
