About the simulation codes

We used the stellar evolution code of MESA (revision 5329) to simulate the evolution of intermediate-mass stars from the pre-MS through to the white-dwarf cooling phase. To simulate thermohaline convection in the CO core, we have used the same spectral code, kindly provided to us by Bill Merryfield, that we previously employed in our simulations of thermohaline mixing in RGB stars.
