[Mesa-users] Questions about RSP

Hi everyone,

I'm playing around with the RSP test_suite cases and have two questions if
that is okay:

1) In the pulsations paper it says that other hooks are still used. Does
that include other_cgrav? In particular, is it used in e.g. equation (1)? I
am trying to figure this out from the rsp files in star/private but it is
not clear to me.

2) With regards to the new rsp quantities in the history file
e.g. rsp_DeltaR and rsp_DeltaMag appear to be positive definite. At least
when I plot them I only see positive values. Is this correct? If so, I have
been able to reproduce some figures in the paper showing the magnitude
varying over one cycle  (e.g. fig 6) by simply picking a cycle and
subtracting [image: -2.5\log(L_i)] where [image: L_i] is the input
luminosity from my inlist. Is this the only way to do it or is there an
internal variable I can plot.

3) Which quantity in the history_columns corresponds to the radial velocity
plotted in the paper?
