OpenWD is an attempt to initiate an open, world-wide collaboration among experts who study white dwarf stars to develop a complete, cutting-edge computer code to model the evolutionary and pulsational characteristics of white dwarf stars. The project will begin with a complete FORTRAN code from the public domain that will serve as the basis for updates and additions from collaborators who want to contribute modules that include their own prescriptions for various physical ingredients. This will distribute the workload among scientists who have a stake in seeing their own work included, and will facilitate comparison between competing ideas by providing a common base for all of the modules.
