This is a set of analysis tools to be used in CMB research. It currently consists of code to calculate the pure Cl power spectra from a HEALPix map along with the associated mode-mixing matrices. In addition it contains a port of polspice to Python. Finally, we have added code to calculate the COBE Quadcube pixel number given an input position on the sky.
There are several Python modules needed in order to run this code. They are
In addition, the location of the cmb_analysis directory needs to be added to your PYTHONPATH environment variable.

The visualization code for the COBE Quadcube pixelization inherits from the projection axes used in Healpy. A better implementation of the visualization would just copy the Healpy mollview code and replace the HpxZZZ axes in the Healpy code with the QcZZZ axes implemented in this code, but given the licensing and copyright requirements that are on this repository due to going through the NASA official release process, we didn't think it would be right to copy the code so a basic/bare version of mollview is implemented here.
