We have just finished the primary tests of the new version of the code. This gave us a green light to start the computation of a grid of models. We want especially to test the brand new approach to the mass transfer between stars in binary systems and the physics of accretion onto compact objects (i.e., neutron stars and black holes). These processes have a fundamental role during the evolution of binaries. Moreover, they also influence the evolution of whole galaxies and even the Universe itself.

As soon as partial results will be obtained and analysed, we will provide you with more details and news.

Thanks for you help!
