The following pull-request should be looked at:


As described there, this includes:

    Modification for work: Phys. Rev. D93, 064047 (2016), arXiv:1509.08804
    Now it support hybrid EOS with up to ten pieces
    Bug corrected on allocation of teh paramter set for back-compatibility
    EOS_Omni: remove space

Note that the diff as shown on butbucket is mis-leading. It mixes parameter names and values in ways that easily lead to misunderstandings.

    Comments are in the pull request. Basically: the code is fine, the physics as well (I had tested against another code and re-derived most of the expressions).

    I am not sure if it should go in right away as it is unclear how much of a speed impact (for example) the loops over pieces have and also for the fact that this is a backwards incompatible change very shortly before the release. It does seem to introduce a handful of changes of behaviour which should not go into the ET without testing first.
