Abstract: In this tutorial style lecture, we will learn how to use LORENE to generate Binary Neutron Star (BNS) Initial Data (ID). We will discuss how to use the different Equations of state (EoS) formats acceptable to LORENE and perform necessary unit conversions. Further, we will discuss the process of forming Piecewise Polytropic EoSs. The commands to generate ID on the tutorial server can be found in the last slide of the PPTX file below.
