[Mesa-users] How to set the initial deuterium abundance?

Hi Meridith and Frank,

Thank you for your quick replies. I realized that I should have also searched in &star_job.

A follow-up question: Can the &star_job settings (initial_h1, initial_h2, initial_he3, initial_he4) be combined with the &controls settings (initial_y and initial_z)? For instance, if I only set initial_h2, initial_y, initial_z and initial_zfracs, can MESA calculate the initial abundance of all the isotopes in the nuclear network? Thanks a lot.

assuming a uniform composition and h2 is in the network,


or if more contyrol is needed, again assuming an isotope is in the network
