The Python ensemble sampling toolkit for affine-invariant MCMC

https://secure.travis-ci.org/dfm/emcee.png?branch=master https://pypip.in/d/emcee/badge.png https://pypip.in/v/emcee/badge.png

emcee is a stable, well tested Python implementation of the affine-invariant ensemble sampler for Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) proposed by Goodman & Weare (2010). The code is open source and has already been used in several published projects in the Astrophysics literature.
