Abstract A general dispersion-relation solver that numerically evaluates the full propagation properties of all the waves in fluid plasmas is presented. The effects of anisotropic pressure, external magnetic fields and beams, relativistic dynamics, as well as local plasma inhomogeneity are included. Title of program: PDRF Catalogue Id: AERF_v1_0 Nature of problem This dispersion relation solver calculates all the solutions and gives corresponding polarizations for magnetized fluid plasma with arbitrary number of components and arbitrary orient wave vector, with and without anisotropic pressure, relativistic, beam and local inhomogeneity effects. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AERF_v1_0; PDRF; 10.1016/j.cpc.2013.10.012 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
