The codes below adds equilibrium ionization to a battle-tested stellar equation of state that had assumed full ionization. The first, Timmes EOS with simple ionization, implements a simple two-level hydrogen atom like model, while the second Timmes EOS with Saha ionization implements all stages of ionization for elements between hydrogen and zinc for all degrees of degeneracy and relativity.
