POSYDON combines functionality to run large grids of MESA binary simulations, efficiently store those simulations, interpolation over those grids to synthesize binary populations, along with a series of visualization routines to interpret the results.

This documentation is designed to provide an introduction to using POSYDON, which is described in a paper currently under review. There are many excellent textbooks for learning about binary evolution.
