Surrogate Final BH properties.
Welcome to surfinBH!
surfinBH provides surrogate final Black Hole properties for mergers of binary black holes (BBH). Just like Point Break, but with black holes!
These fits are described in the following papers:
 Vijay Varma, Davide Gerosa, Francois Hebert and Leo C. Stein, 2018, in preparation.
If you find this package useful in your work, please cite reference  and, if available, the relevant paper describing the particular model.
surfinBH is available through PyPI.

git clone https://github.com/vijayvarma392/surfinBH cd surfinBH git submodule init git submodule update python setup.py install
If you do not have root permissions, replace the last step with
python setup.py install --user
All of these can be installed through pip or conda.

Load the fit. This only needs to be done once at the start of your script.
fit = surfinBH.LoadFits(fit_name) >>> Loaded surfinBH7dq2 fit.
The evaluation of each fit is different, so be sure to read the documentation. This also defines the frames in which different quantities are defined.
We also provide ipython examples for usage of different fits:
