Synfast Random Number Seed

Vector C_{l} 's are incompatible with Scalar and Tensor C_{l} 's. The Transfer functions require Scalar and/or Tensor C_{l} 's.
The HEALpix synfast program is used to generate maps from the resultant spectra. The random number seed governs the phase of the
a_{lm} 's generated by synfast. The default of zero causes synfast to generate a new see from the system time with each run.
Specifying a fixed nonzero value will return fixed phases with successive runs.

The Equation of State entry is the effective equation of state parameter for dark energy and is assumed constant.
The Comoving Sound Speed parameter is the constant comoving sound speed of the dark energy; 1=quintessence.
Setting Degeneracies to zero sets the mass degeneracies parameter to massive neutrinos. Otherwise this should be a space separated list
of values, one per eigenstate.
Fractions should be a space separated list indicating the fraction of Ω_{ν} h^{2} accounted for
by each eigenstate.

Redshifts
The ratio is that of the initial tensor/scalar power spectrum amplitudes. The vector modes use the scalar settings.
Supply 'Number' values in each after the first, separated by spaces.
To get μK^{2} , set a realistic initial scalar amplitude (e.g., 2.3e-9) and the output scale factor to ~7.43e12; for dimensionles transfer functions, set scalar amp to 1 and the output scale factor to 1.<.li>
kmax=0.5 is enough for sigma_8. Each redshift must be supplied, separated by spaces. They will be sorted into descending order.

Massive Neutrino Approximation: The series velocity weight option: switch to this approximation once non-relativistic. The fast
approximation scheme is a CMB-only option, accurate for light neutrinos.
Accurate EE: Set to yes if you are bothered about percent accuracy on EE from reionization.
Tensor Neutrinos: Indicates whether or not to include neutrinos in the tensor evolution equations.
Truncate late radiation heirarchies: Indicates whether or not to turn off small-scale late tume radiation heirarchies. This is a time versus accuracy tradeoff.
Accuracy Boosts: Higher numbers improve accuracy by reducing time steps.
