Stellar evolution models are key to study the long term evolution of stars. Furthermore, such models are crucial ingredients for studies of galaxy formation and evolution. In this work (Keszthelyi et al. 2022 – Paper IV), we compute and scrutinize a large grid of stellar evolution models, which also take into account fossil magnetic field effects. Consequently, the wind and rotational properties of stars can significantly change, depending on the magnetic field strength. The research is open access and open source. As part of a full reproduction package, the library of stellar models is available to the community via Zenodo.
