The best place for working out what a column is to look in the
history_columns.list and profile_columns.list in $MESA_DIR/star/defaults.
While those options you show do not have explanations, you can make a
reasonable inference from its name. Take the string "center_ye" split it
into "center", so we now it applies to a quantity at the center of the
star, and "ye" the electron fraction, so its the electron fraction of the
star at its center, while center_c12 is the central abundance of carbon 12.
>Also, there are columns that exactly same values such as "log_center_T"
and "log_cntr_T". Why these extra columns are exist?
The history_columns.list says the "log_cntr_T" is provided as a short hand
