CosmoChord

CosmoChord:PolyChord + CosmoMC for cosmological parameter estimation and evidence calculation
Author: Will Handley
ForkedFrom:https://github.com/cmbant/CosmoMC
Homepage:http://polychord.co.uk
https://travis-ci.org/williamjameshandley/CosmoChord.svg?branch=master

Description and installation

CosmoChord is a fork of CosmoMC, which adds nested sampling provided by PolyChord.

Installation procedure:

.. bash::

   git clone --recursive https://github.com/williamjameshandley/CosmoChord
   cd CosmoChord
   make
   export OMP_NUM_THREADS=1
   ./cosmomc test.ini

To run, you should add action=5 to your ini file, and include batch3/polychord.ini. Consider modifying test.ini

If you wish to use Planck data, you should follow the CosmoMC planck instructions, and then run make clean; make after source bin/clik_profile.sh

Changes

You can see the key changes by running:

.. bash::
   git remote add upstream https://github.com/cmbant/CosmoMC
   git fetch upstream
   git diff --stat upstream/master
   git diff  upstream/master source


The changes to CosmoMC are minor:

  • Nested sampling heavily samples the tails of the posterior. This means that there need to be more corrections for these regions that are typically unexplored by the default metropolis hastings tool. This is now implemented by separate CAMB git submodule
  • You should not use openmp parallelisation, as this in inefficient when using PolyChord. Instead, you should use pure MPI parallelisation, and you may use as many cores as you have live points.
