[mesa-users] Suggestions on GYRE parameters

Thanks a lot for your answer.

So if I'm right I should have a freq_min of about 40 and thus a freq_max of
160 (taking an average mass of 0.7 solar mass and a d radius of 4-6). I'll
look at the results for l=0 p modes and I will surely come again for new
questions (sorry).

Until then, thank you again !
