The GALPROP cosmic ray and non-thermal photon emissions framework: v57 release
July 25, 2023
We are reporting about the latest release of state-of-the-art cosmic ray (CR) propagation code called GalProp. Having 25 years of development behind it, the GalProp framework has become a de-facto standard in astrophysics of CRs, diffuse photon emissions (radio- to $\gamma$-rays), and searches for new physics.
GalProp uses information from astronomy, particle, and nuclear physics to predict CRs and their associated emissions self-consistently, providing the modeling framework unifying the many results of individual measurements in physics and astronomy spanning in energy coverage, types of instrumentation, and the nature of detected species. The range of its physical validity covers sub-keV-PeV energies for particles and from $\mu$eV-PeV for photons. The framework and the datasets are public and are extensively used by many experimental collaborations, and by thousands of individual researchers worldwide for interpretation of their data and for making predictions.

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.
