Modelling jetted Active Galactic Nuclei radiative processes with python
agnpy focuses on the numerical computation of the photon spectra produced by leptonic radiative processes in jetted Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN).
acknowledging and citing agnpy
As a general acknowledgement of
agnpy usage, we recommend citing the agnpy release paper.
Additionaly, to specify which version of
agnpy is being used, that version's zenodo record can be cited.
We recommend citing both.
At the following links you can find:
- the agnpy release paper (for a general citation);
- the zenodo record (for citing a specific version)
documentation and quickstart
You are invited to check the documentation at https://agnpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/.
To get familiar with the code you can run the notebooks in the
of the documentation.
The only dependencies are:
numpy managing the numerical computation;
astropy managing physical units and astronomical distances.
matplotlib for visualisation and reproduction of the tutorials.
scipy for interpolation
The code is available in the python package index and can be installed via
pip install agnpy
The code can also be installed using
conda install -c conda-forge agnpy
A test suite is available in
agnpy/tests, to run it just type
pytest in the main directory.
