In situations like this, it is a good idea to adjust the time step based on the gradient of the force - because the whole concept of numerical integration is that "things don't change too much from now until the next time step", and that assumption is violated when you move rapidly through a region with fast-changing force. This has a risky side-effect: if ...

Enzo is fundamentally a grid-based finite-volume hydrodynamics code. That is, the domain is divided into cells, each is assigned various fluid properties (density, velocity, etc.), and at each timestep fluxes of those quantities across the interfaces between cells are used to update the quantities in the cells. It has a choice of particular methods for ...

First off, let's answer the question: what part of that equation would change? $f\left(\epsilon\right)$ is always the same if you're in equilibrium. Scattering won't change that, because scattering alone won't move you out of equilibrium. If anything, scattering has the opposite effect. What can change is $Z\left(\epsilon\right)$. How it would change ...
