2) mull over the mesa instrument papers.

But I still have a question: there is a plot option about "Kippenhann" history of mixing, burning, and more" and "TRho -- history of central temperature vs. density" in MESA, which can help to analysis the burning phase in MESA, the question is that how to  analyze this problem?

Please tell me that if I want to analyze the burning phase by using the above datas, what should I do ?
