Abstract The BADGER equation of state library was developed to enable inertial confinement fusion plasma codes to more accurately model plasmas in the high-density, low-temperature regime. The code had the capability to calculate 1- and 2-T plasmas using the Thomas–Fermi model and an individual electron accounting model. Ion equation of state data can be calculated using an ideal gas model or via a quotidian equation of state with scaled binding energies. Electron equation of state data can be calcula... Title of program: BADGERLIB v1.0 Catalogue Id: AEND_v1_0 Nature of problem Equation of State (EOS) calculations are necessary for the accurate simulation of high energy density plasmas. Historically, most EOS codes used in these simulations have relied on an ideal gas model. This model is inadequate for low-temperature, high-density plasma conditions; the gaseous and liquid phases; and the solid phase. The BADGER code was developed to give more realistic EOS data in these regimes. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEND_v1_0; BADGERLIB v1.0; 10.1016/j.cpc.2012.07.010 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
