Core library to analyze gravitational-wave data, find signals, and study their parameters.

Project description

GW150914

PyCBC is a software package used to explore astrophysical sources of gravitational waves. It contains algorithms to analyze gravitational-wave data, detect coalescing compact binaries, and make bayesian inferences from gravitational-wave data. PyCBC was used in the first direct detection of gravitational waves and is used in flagship analyses of LIGO and Virgo data.

PyCBC is collaboratively developed by the community and is lead by a team of GW astronomers with the aim to build accessible tools for gravitational-wave data analysis.
