Abstract NuCraft ( is an open-source Python project that calculates neutrino oscillation probabilities for neutrinos from cosmic-ray interactions in the atmosphere for their propagation through Earth. The solution is obtained by numerically solving the Schrödinger equation. The code supports arbitrary numbers of neutrino flavors including additional sterile neutrinos, CP violation, arbitrary mass hierarchies, matter effects with a configurable continuous Earth model, and takes int... Title of program: nuCraft Catalogue Id: AEXK_v1_0 Nature of problem Calculation of oscillation probabilities of neutrinos that originate in cosmic-ray interactions in the Earth's atmosphere and propagate through the Earth, for realistic Earth and atmospheric models and multiple flavors (optionally including sterile neutrinos and CP violation). Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEXK_v1_0; nuCraft; 10.1016/j.cpc.2015.07.010 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
