[Mesa-users] How to show li7 abundance evolution?

Hi Jiarong,

What net are you using?  The default is basic.net, which only contains 1H, 3He, 4He, 12C, 14N, 16O, 20Ne, and 24Mg, so that may be your issue.

Subject: [Mesa-users] How to show li7 abundance evolution?

Dear mesa-users,

I am Jiarong, a grad student in astrophysics. I am current working on lithium problem with the help of mesa. My question may seem stupid: I use create_pre_mainsequence_model to create stars with mass like 1.5 Msun and I want to see the evolution of abundances, especially Li6 and Li7 abundances. But I failed to display Li in Abundance window. I add li7 in profile_column.ist, and also use Abundance_which_isos_to_show(7) = ‘li7’ in inlist_pgstar but still can not see li7.

Maybe I miss an important step, maybe li7 is just not in the net, I am very confused. Do I need to set up initial Li7 abundance? Can anyone give me an idea?

I am working on macOS Mojave(Version 10.14.5), using MESA_11701 and MESA SDK 20190503.
