galario is a library that exploits the computing power of modern graphic cards (GPUs) to accelerate the comparison of model predictions to radio interferometer observations. Namely, it speeds up the computation of the synthetic visibilities given a model image (or an axisymmetric brightness profile) and their comparison to the observations.

Check out the documentation and the installation instructions.

galario is used in a growing number of publications. You can find the updated list of publications [at this link].
