SLH focusses on the simulation of 3-dimensional hydrodynamics, using implicit time integration, and treating both low and high Mach number flows correctly.
It features a general nuclear reaction network and arbitrary curvilinear grids. SLH also allows simulations in one and two dimensions and is optimized for parallel computing.
SLH is a unique tool to address inherently multidimensional aspects of stellar evolution. It can shed light on finely resolved processes, such as the propagation of a deflagration front, and also on longer phases e.g. of neon shell burning.
