MCMC codes used by the Carnegie Supernova Project
These are the python codes used for the analysis of type Ia supernovae. Currently, there are four sets of code:
Host_DM: Determine the distances to hosts with Cepheid variables.
Extinction: Compute the extinction properties of a sample of SNe Ia.
Tripp_H0: Determine the Hubble constant using the Tripp method
Ext_H0: Determine the Hubble constant using the extinctions determined from
Each set of codes runs independently, though
the distance modulus output from
Ext_H0 requires the
extinction properties output from
The following python modules/packages are required to run the code, all of which
are available through
anaconda. The versions are those used when
developing the code.
- Python 2.7
- Numpy 1.11.3
- Scipy 0.19.0
- matplotlib 2.0.2 (for graphical output)
- pystan 184.108.40.206
- astropy 1.3.3
There are modules used in common between all the codes. These are located in
lib folder and should be made available in python's search path
(e.g., by setting
$PYTHONPATH). If you use the provided PBS/SLURM submission
scripts in each folder, they will take care of copying the needed python
modules/scripts to the working folder.
Each folder has a readme with instructions on usage.
