LORENE classes implement basic structures such as arrays and matrices, but also abstract mathematical objects, such as tensors, and astrophysical objects, such as stars and black holes. Note that, as a research software, LORENE is under perpetual development.
LORENE is a free software under
the GNU General Public License.
It is developed in the Meudon section of Paris Observatory, at LUTH laboratory,
mostly by Eric Gourgoulhon, Philippe Grandclément,
Jean-Alain Marck, Jérôme Novak and Keisuke
Taniguchi. For more details about LORENE history and a complete list of
