The SImulation and Modeling Tool for Optical Interferometry (SIMTOI) is an open source (GPL v3) software package for simulating and modeling optical interferometric observations of complex astrophysical sources that are not easily described by analytic expressions.
At present the only method of installing SIMTOI is compilation from source. Please see the instructions on the wiki for further information.
Please try and resolve installation issues with your system administrator, as they are likely due to issues with dependencies - however, if you think you have encountered a genuine issue in the installation, please do report it.
In addition to reporting issues with the code or the documentation, code and documentation contributions/patches are welcome. Please read the following page for more details on how to contribute code.
SIMTOI includes the following libraries as part of its distribution:
SIMTOI supports, but our repositories do not include,
