This test case evolves a very massive helium star from the He-ZAMS up to the ocurrence of a pulsational pair-instability event (see Marchant et al. 2019).

Initialization of the model

The initial mass of the helium star is set in inlist_extra

Zbase = 0.00142d0
/ ! end of kap namelist

new_omega_div_omega_crit = 0.10d0
/ ! end of controls namelist

initial_mass = 70.00d0
initial_Y = 0.99858d0
initial_Z = 0.00142d0
initial_he3 = 0d0
/ ! end of controls namelist

In this case we use a \(72 M_\odot\)
