marg-iso - A program to estimate p(s,A,R|data) for stars ============================================================ Author - Stuart Sale Intro ------------ This is python based module to estimate the posterior p(s,A,R|data) for stars by fitting a Gaussian mixture model, where s is the distance, A the (monochromatic) extinction and R parametrises the extinction law. This software accompanies Sale & Magorrian (2015) http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2015MNRAS.448.1738S . The posteriors p(s,A,R|data) can be used in the Gaussian Process based 3d extinction method of Sale & Magorrian (2014) http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2014MNRAS.445..256S . Comments ------------ More documentation to follow in due course.
