The SSHT code provides functionality to perform fast and exact spin spherical harmonic transforms based on the sampling theorem on the sphere derived in McEwen & Wiaux (2011).
SSHT can also interface with ducc0 and use it as a backend for spherical harmonic transforms and rotations.
The python package, pyssht, is available on pypi and can be installed with:
pip install pyssht
Both can be installed using pip:
pip install conan cmake
Then SSHT can be compiled with:
git clone https://github.com/astro-informatics/ssht.git mkdir ssht/build && cd ssht/build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -Dconan_deps=True .. make make install
The above will also download FFTW, if necessary.
Further instructions for installing SSHT Matlab and Fortran versions are available here.
Further documentation is available here.
Usage for the python package is also given in the package docstring.
