USINE is a C++ toolbox for the propagation of Galactic cosmic rays (GCRs). Starting from CR properties (list of nuclei and their properties, interaction cross-sections) and Galactic ingre- dients (source spectra, interstellar medium, radiation field, etc.), several semi-analytical propa- gation models are available (1D and 2D). Non-public versions of USINE were used during the last decade to determine the transport parameters, to study radioactive nuclei, and to test a pos- sible dark matter contribution in antinuclei. This poster illustrates USINE usefulness both as a pedagogic and as a research tool. While preparing for an overdue public release, we are also im- plementing the recently developed ‘pinching method’ to have electrons and positrons in USINE.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
