PArthENoPE is a FORTRAN77 numerical code which computes the abundances of light nuclides produced
during Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. Starting from nuclear statistical equilibrium conditions the
program solves the set of corresponding coupled ordinary differential equations, follows the
departure from chemical equilibrium of nuclear species, and determines their asymptotic
abundances as function of several input cosmological parameters as the baryon density, the
number of effective neutrino species, the value of cosmological constant and the neutrino chemical
potential.
