This program is called galprop . Originally work was concentrated on a diffusive model in 3D (R,z,p) with full momentum dependence. Nuclei and electrons are computed for different halo sizes, using a numerical solution of the diffusion equation. The observed distribution of gas in the Galaxy is used, and the interstellar radiation field has been recomputed using recent information from e.g. IRAS, COBE. Observational data constraining the model are B/C ratio, 10Be/Be, the directly measured electron spectrum, diffuse Galactic gamma rays, and non-thermal radio.
From 1997-2000 the code was written in fortran90 and was extended to include
