Abstract

We describe recent developments to the Castro astrophysics simulation code, focusing on new features that enable our simulations of X-ray bursts. Two highlights of Castro's ongoing development are the new integration technique to couple hydrodynamics and reactions to high order and GPU offloading. We discuss how these features will help offset some of the computational expense in X-ray burst models.
