Korg: a modern 1D LTE spectral synthesis package

ajwheeler/korg.jl 31 Oct 2022

We present Korg, a new package for 1D LTE (local thermodynamic equilibrium) spectral synthesis of FGK stars, which computes theoretical spectra from the near-ultraviolet to the near-infrared, and implements both plane-parallel and spherical radiative transfer.
