Compact Object Mergers: Population Astrophysics and Statistics (COMPAS;
https://compas.science) is a public rapid binary population synthesis code.
COMPAS generates populations of isolated stellar binaries under a set of
parametrized assumptions in order to allow comparisons against observational
data sets, such as those coming from gravitational-wave observations of merging
compact remnants. It includes a number of tools for population processing in
addition to the core binary evolution components. COMPAS is publicly available
via the github repository https://github.com/TeamCOMPAS/COMPAS/, and is
designed to allow for flexible modifications as evolutionary models improve.
This paper describes the methodology and implementation of COMPAS. It is a
living document which will be updated as new features are added to COMPAS; the
current document describes COMPAS v02.21.00.
