This program enables the user to compute the abundances of the elements in the Standard Model of cosmology, and additionally provides possibilities to alter the assumptions of the cosmological model in order to study their consequences on the abundances of the elements. In particular the baryon-to-photon ratio, the effective number of neutrinos and the neutron li...
