Dependencies

TooMassFun contains components written in Scala, C, C++, CUDA, and R. These components depend on the following libraries and build tools:

Components

TooMassFun consists of the following utilities:

  • PscConvert (Scala): Parse 2MASS Point Source Catalog (PSC) data files and provide input to mags2temp
  • mags2temp (C): Perform a black-body fit on J,H,Ks magnitudes to estimate color and brightness
  • SkyRender (C++, CUDA): Render images of the night sky using output of mags2temp
