Main changes from TALYS-0.72 to TALYS-1.0


For the interested user, there is a LOG file with all the changes.

The main changes are listed below.



  • 5 different level density models:
    • ldmodel 1: Constant temperature (aka Gilbert-Cameron)
    • ldmodel 2: Back-shifted Fermi gas model
    • ldmodel 3: Generalized Superfluid model
    • ldmodel 4: Microscopic Skyrme-Hartree-Fock-Bobolyubov level density (statistical model, Goriely)
    • ldmodel 5: Microscopic Skyrme-Hartree-Fock-Bobolyubov level densities (combinatorial model, Hilaire and Goriely), parity-dependent

The parameters were revised when going from TALYS-0.74 to TALYS-1.0

ldmodel 1,2 and 3 can be used with or without collective enhancement.

Consistent level density parameters for all models.

  • Possibility to start a calculation with an excited nucleus
  • Use of semi-microscopic JLM OMP by Bauge-Delaroche
  • Astrophysical reaction rates
  • Simple deuteron breakup model by Kalbach                                              




  • Decreased the crash chance.
  • Reparation of several minor and a few major bugs sent in by beta testers. Thanks!
  • Replaced ECIS-03 by ECIS-06 (easier communication)
