Abstract This paper describes CRModel, a general collisional radiative modeling code written in C++. It uses a flexible plain text input file to describe all relevant aspects of the considered plasma region, including collisional cross sections and radiative decay probabilities. This allows the model to be used for a wide range of atomic or ionic plasma species. The types of results that the model generates, also specified in the input file, include atomic state densities and ionization and recombinat... Title of program: CRMODEL Catalogue Id: ADNK_v1_0 Nature of problem The program calculates atomic level population densities of atoms in low temperature plasmas. Collisional-radiative recombination and ionization rate coefficients, radiative energy losses, individual rate coefficients, and effective production and destruction flows between independent levels are also calculated. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADNK_v1_0; CRMODEL; 10.1016/S0010-4655(00)00231-9 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
