About ===== This directory contains all the scripts and input files required to reproduce the results in: A self-consistent model of Galactic stellar and dust infrared emission and the abundance of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons Robitaille et al., 2012 http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201219073 Requirements ============ The scripts require the following packages to be installed: * Python 2.7.3 (http://www.python.org) * Numpy 1.6.2 (http://www.numpy.org) * Matplotlib 1.1.0 (http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net) * Hyperion 0.9.0 (http://www.hyperion-rt.org) * ATpy 0.9.6 (http://atpy.github.com) * PyFITS 3.0.7 (http://www.stsci.edu/institute/software_hardware) * PyWCS 1.11-4.8.4 (https://trac.assembla.com/astrolib/) * APLpy 0.9.8 (http://aplpy.github.com/) * Python Imaging Library 1.1.7 (http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/) * h5py 2.0.1 (http://code.google.com/p/h5py/) The scripts may work with previous or future versions of these dependencies, but the versions indicated are those used for the published results. Instructions ============ The 'SKY/' directory contains the scripts used to produce the SKY model for the stellar populations. The 'scripts/' directory contain the scripts to set up, run, and post-process the radiative transfer model. To run all the scripts in the right order, simply run: ./do.sh in the top-level directory. The final models will be placed in a directory called 'models/' and the plots will be placed in a directory called 'plots/'. Note that if these directories exist, they will be emptied before running the models. Note that by default, the models will be run with 12 processes. If you have fewer or more than 12 cores, you can change this by editing the following line in scripts/run_all.py: os.system('hyperion -m 12 ... to: os.system('hyperion -m NPROC ... where NPROC is the number of processes you want to use. If you want to find the variances between the models and the data, you can run: python scripts/fit_profiles.py Online repository ================= The latest version of these files can be accessed at: https://github.com/hyperion-rt/paper-galaxy-rt-model The tar file included with the paper is the version of the scripts used for the published results, while the online repository may contain minor fixes and improvements for anyone interested in using and expanding this work.
