GWtool README - gwtool.sf.net The GWtool package provides a few simple tools that may come in handy when working with gravitational waves. GWtool is written in Fortran 2003/8 and requires libSUFR (libsufr.sf.net). Programs included: * gw_coalescence_pmax: Calculates the maximum initial period that can coalesce within a certain time * gw_coalescence_time: Calculates the time needed to reach a certain Porb (default 0) using gravitational-wave evolution * gw_coalescence_time_from_f0: Calculates time of coalescence for a LIGO binary from certain frequency f0 * gw_eta2q: Compute the symmetric mass ratio η from the asymmetric mass ratio q * gw_final_period: Calculates the orbital period of a detached stellar binary after a given time of GW evolution * gw_isco: Calculates isco properties for a black hole with given mass and spin * gw_ligo_mcmc_injection: Create an inspiral injection xml to use for lalinference_mcmc * gw_ligo_xml2screen: Print the contents of a LIGO/Virgo injection.xml file to screen * gw_m1m2-mceta: Compute chirp mass and symmetric mass ratio from the individual masses * gw_match_wfs: Match two time-domain waveforms in specified files * gw_mceta-m1m2: Convert the chirp mass and symmetric mass ratio to individual masses * gw_q2eta: Compute the symmetric mass ratio η from the asymmetric mass ratio q INSTALLATION: For installation instructions, see INSTALL.
