This page introduces my C++ version of Recfast. This code is based on the C version by Seager et al. 1999 (the original version can be found here), but was strongly rewritten and updated to:


  1. perform the normal Recfast computation (Recfast v1.4.2 with normal helium rec)

  2. include the recombination corrections given by Chluba & Thomas 2010

  3. allow running a simple Dark matter annihilation module


These tasks are achieved using the simple 3-level approach of Recfast. To solve the system of ODE's we use a simplified version of the stiff ODE-solver developed by Chluba, Vasil & Dursi, 2010. This solver allows us to avoid the switches in the original Recfast code.

To download the code, please click here. This tar-ball contains a makefile and detailed explanation about how to compile and run the code. Please feel free to use, modify and distribute it, however, when using the code please refer to:
