Project Description

Introduction

Pyflation is a Python package for calculating cosmological perturbations during inflationary expansion of the universe.

Pyflation was created by Ian Huston (http://www.ianhuston.net) while at Queen Mary, University of London (http://www.qmul.ac.uk).

Once installed the modules in the pyflation package can be used to run simulations of different scalar field models of the early universe.

The main classes are contained in the cosmomodels module and include simulations of background fields and first order and second order perturbations. The sourceterm package contains modules required for the computation of the term required for the evolution of second order perturbations. The analysis package contains routines to calculate the first order First and Second order perturbations can be calculated for single field models but only first order perturbations can be evolved for multi-field models.

Alongside the Python package, the bin directory contains Python scripts which can run first and second order simulations. A helper script called “pyflation_qsubstart.py” sets up a full second order run (including background, first order and source calculations) to be used on queueing system which contains the “qsub” executable (e.g. a Rocks cluster).

Installation of the code is described in the INSTALL.txt file. The pyflation package can be installed as a normal Python package to the site-packages directory or each run of the code can be self-contained with code, results and logs all contained in a run directory.

The “pyflation_newrun.py” script creates a new run directory and populates it with the code and sub-directories which are required. In particular the file “provenence.log” in the “applogs” directory contains information about the version of the code and system libraries at the time of the creation of the run.

More information about Pyflation is available at the website http://pyflation.ianhuston.net. Online documentation is available at http://pyflation.ianhuston.net/docs.
