What is SirOp

SiRop is an evolution of an earlier r-process code (r-Java) which was developed specifically to perform sensitivity studies. In other words, we wanted a program that we could use to run automated or “script-like” execution of code. This involved a complete rework of the user interface an addition of code to perform automated queueing, execution and analysis of r-process simulations
