A set of astronomy-related routines for generating Voigt profiles from atomic data, reading and writing data, working with SEDs and passbands.

Project description

This package contains functions useful for general scientific programming, with a focus on astronomical research. The documentation details everything that is available, but some example tasks that can be handled are:

  • Calculate absorption profiles for various ions observed in astrophysical environments.
  • Fit a smooth continuum to a spectrum with many emission or absorption features.
  • Find the expected broad-band magnitudes given a spectral energy distribution.

More details are given in the documentation here:

To install, either download the tarball from the pypi website and then do:

python install

You may need to put a ‘sudo’ in front of this.

A better way to install (which allows for easy uninstallation) is by using pip:

pip install barak

but you need to have pip ( installed.

To run the tests you need py.test ( installed. Then run

py.test barak

from this directory.
