Spectrum generator for astrophysical simulation data

Project description


Build Status Coverage Status Documentation Status PyPI version

Trident is a Python package for creating synthetic absorption-line spectra from astrophysical hydrodynamics simulations. It utilizes the yt package to read in simulation datasets and extends it to provide realistic synthetic observations appropriate for studies of the interstellar, circumgalactic, and intergalactic media.

Installation (after yt installed)

Trident can be installed with pip:

pip install trident

To get the development version, clone this repository and install like this:

git clone
cd trident
