## Dynamical ejecta data

We release dynamical ejecta data from binary neutron star merger simulations of

The outflows are extracted at a fixed coordinate sphere with radius 300 G/c^2 Msun (= 443 km). Only material unbound according to the geodesic criterion is considered to be part of the dynamical ejecta.

Data are relased on ZENODO

Included data:

`Table2.txt`

: Table 2 of the paper in machine readable format`tabulated_nucsyn.h5`

: nucleosynthesis yields from pre-computed parametrized trajectories. The first three indices of each dataset are Ye, entropy, and expansion timescale tau. For example`Y_final[iYe, ientr, itau, iiso]`

gives the final abundance of isotope`iiso`

with`A[iiso]`

and`Z[iiso]`

for a trajectory with initial Ye =`Ye[iYe]`

, initial entropy`s[ientr]`

, and expansion timescale`tau[itau]`

.`[model].tar`

: ejecta data for individual simulations. The naming convention is the same as in the paper.

For each model we provide:

`outflow.txt`

: angle integrated outflow rate and cumulated ejecta mass. Data are given in units with Msun = G = c = 1 (eg, the conversion factor for time to seconds is 4.9258e-6).`hist_entropy.dat`

: histogram of the ejecta as a function of the entropy (in kb)`hist_vinf.dat`

: histogram of the ejecta as a function of the asymptotic velocity (in units of c)`hist_ye.dat`

: histogram of the ejecta as a function of the electron fraction Ye.`profile.txt`

: time integrated ejecta profiles as a function of the polar angle.`hist_vinf_theta.h5`

: histograms of the ejecta as a function of the asymptotic velocity and the polar angle.`hist_ye_theta.h5`

: histograms of the ejecta as a function of the asymptotic velocity and the polar angle.`hist_ye_entropy_tau.h5`

: histograms of the ejecta as a function of Ye, entropy, and expansion timescale tau.

Additionally we distribute:

- Initial data generated with LORENE and associated EOS tables.
- EOS tables used for the evolution
- Parameter file used for each simulation

For the multidimensional histograms the indices are ordered as specified in the file name, ie the file `hist_ye_theta.h5`

tabulates the ejecta mass as a function of Ye (first index) and polar angle theta (second index).
