CAMB: modify DM and radiation evolution equation and perturbation equation

Post by Zhu-Yao Wang » January 17 2021

Hi all,
I'm trying to add new variables to CAMB but failed to find where should I modify DM and radiation evolution equation and perturbation equation in equations.f90 file after going through the codes for several days.
I would like to know:
1. Where could I modify the evolution of \rho_{DM}? Also \rho_{radiation}?
2. What synchronous equation is used for DM in equations.f90 and where it is located?

Thank you so much for your help!

The equations are described in the CAMB notes

The background CDM density (grhoc) is just obtained from the usual $\propto 1/a^3$ scaling. The perturbation variable is "clxc".
