RODEO

(code for 2D disk simulation)

RODEO (standing for Roe solver for disk-embedded objects) is a code aiming to simulate disks, including their interaction with planets. It treats the protoplanetary disk as two-dimensional. It uses a numerical technique termed a Roe solver, an efficient-but-approximate method of handling discontinuities such as those associated with shock waves.
