Probabilistically forecast astronomical masses and radii

Project description

forecaster-plus (forecaster 1.1ish)

An internally overhauled but fundamentally similar version of Forecaster by Jingjing Chen and David Kipping, originally presented in arXiv:1603.08614 and hosted at

The model itself has not changed- no new data was included and the hyperparameter file was not regenerated. All functions were rewritten to take advantage of Numpy vectorization and some additional user features were added.


To install this package with pip, run

pip install forecaster-plus


Changes include but are not limited to:

  • Rewriting all functions to take advantage of Numpy vectorization
  • Including the ability to input asymmetric uncertainties in mass or radius
  • Enabling pip installation


If used, please cite the original Forecaster paper and the bibcode for this implementation eventually hosted on the Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL).
