Hi Willie,

I checked it after someone else's suggestion. Everything I need is in that file.

Thanks for answer.

Take a look at


and search.

      grep 'log_center_T' $MESA_DIR/star/defaults/*

For example,  in history columns.list you will find that log_cntr_T is simply a shorter name for log_center_T.  But in profile_columns.list it mentions that log_center_temp is reported in the first few rows of the file.

In each case conditions near the center of the model are reported.

But, I couldn't help myself to notice that there is no proper explanation for column names in output files, such as "center_ye" and "center_c12". I couldn't find any documentary about explanation for these columns. Also, there are columns that exactly same values such as "log_center_T" and "log_cntr_T". Why these extra columns are exist?
