 The TART2012 Code Update Includes Executables for Windows, Linux and Mac,

and Source Code to Create Executables on any other type of Computer.

 

What TART Does and How it Works are extensively documented elsewhere in hundreds

of online reports (for example, see, the below references)


Acknowledgement

The last public release of TART was TART 2005. Since that

time there has been no support or development work done on

TART at LLNL. However, outside of LLNL TART users have

been very active in using and improving TART for their own

applications. As a courtesy these users sent me a copy of the

current TART, which I named TART 2012. Through their

kindness I have been able to make TART 2012 available to

TART users inside and outside of LLNL, at essentially no cost

to LLNL or any other organization. To me this is an excellent

example of cooperation within the International community.

 

In this regard I must acknowledge in particular, the major

contributions of Fabrice Pelestor (DGA/Technique Naval,

Toulon, France); he contributed many improvements to

TART, particularly he contributed the 64 bit and multi-

processing version, to greatly modernize the code and allow it

to be efficiently used with today's computers. The code we

have today, TART 2012, could not have been produced without

his contributions.
