Finds the cosmological power spectrum from a N-body simulation using the MPI FFTW library. May be run as a parallel computation for increased resolution. Reads in binary Gadget2 files.
A neutral hydrogen galaxy modeling and fitting tool
Galactus is a new astronomical modeling package. The aim is to model and fit datacubes from radio synthesis telescopes. Galactus is the only HI tool which can predict the HI (self-)absorption.
Toolbox for high-level analysis of astronomical gamma-ray data
GammaLib is a versatile toolbox for the high-level analysis of astronomical gamma-ray data. It consists of a C++ library and a Python module that exposes the full functionality of the library to Python. The library provides an abstract data analysis framework that is independent of any specific gamma-ray telescope. Instrument specific aspects, such as handling of data formats and response functions, are implemented as isolated and well defined modules sharing an identical abstract interface. This enables a joint multi-instrument analysis of data, allowing for consistent broad-band spectral fitting or imaging. So far, GammaLib supports analysis of data obtained with COMPTEL, Fermi/LAT, and Cherenkov telescopes (CTA, H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS). Except for HEASARC's cfitsio library that is used to implement the FITS interface, GammaLib does not rely on any third-party software. All functionalities are implemented natively.
Experimental OpenGl night sky rendering by making full use of modern PCs hardware. Writing another planetarium is crazy? It's Glunatic!
Gravitation is an interactive program, which tries to simulate the dynamics of celestial objects in their mutual gravitational field.
Astrophysical magnetic fields simulator
Hammurabi is a HEALPix-based tool for simulating observables such as polarized synchrotron and thermal dust emission from models of physical inputs such as magnetic fields, dust and electron distributions, etc. It is a modular C++ framework into which you can add your own models easily and then use it to perform the line-of-sight integration to compute the observables. See the wiki for installation and usage information. Please cite the original Waelkens et al. (2009) paper if you use hammurabi. Hammurabi is being re-written and significantly improved. For the new version, please go to https://bitbucket.org/hammurabicode/hamx
Educational astrometry utility for plotting stars on a Hertzsprung-Russel diagram. Useful for learning about stellar spectra and properties and performing spectroscopic parallax calculations, as found in many high school physics courses.
hsearch is a command-line tool to extract data from the Hipparcos and Tyco astrometry catalogues.
Analysis software for Nbody/SPH or SPH simulations (e.g. performed with Gadget II). See http://sourceforge.net/apps/wordpress/hyplot/about and http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/hyplot/wiki for more information.
N point alignment infrastructure for INDI telescope drivers
This project is no longer under active development. It has been superceded by the alignment subsystem which is now part of the main INDI project. This project provides an "alignment layer" driver to sit above INDI telescope drivers. This layer performs transformation services for telescope coordinates as they pass up and down to the underlying driver. The conversion matrices are computed from alignment datums passed down into the alignment layer. The N point alignment model can be used for both equatorial and alt azimuth mounts. The alignment database and coordinate conversion functionality is isolated in a separate class library module which can also be used to provide this functionality directly to INDI telescope drivers.
KSetiSpy is a KDE program for monitoring the SETI@home client and displaying information about the data it analyzes. It offers the same user interface as SETI Spy, a popular Windows utility.
KTelescope is a robust Server/Client control library for Meade's LX200 based telescopes. The library is divided into two components: A Low level modulo that allows access to the LX200 command set, and a Client/Server skeleton for remote control.
Ksetiwatch monitors multiple SETI@home clients running on your computer or in your local network, and logs/manages completed work units. It is developed for the K Desktop Environment.
pp->gamma cross sections parametrization
This library contains the parametrization of pp->gamma cross section functions based on Phys.Rev. D90 (2014) 12, 123014 (astro-ph/1406.7369) work. The functions are written in Python, Fortran and Matlab. Please, if you use this library DO NOT reference to this webpage, instead reference to Phys.Rev. D90 (2014) 12, 123014 (astro-ph/1406.7369), "Parametrization of gamma-ray production cross-sections for pp interactions in a broad proton energy range from the kinematic threshold to PeV energies" by Ervin Kafexhiu, Felix Aharonian, Andrew M. Taylor, Gabriela S. Vila
C++ interface for the MESA Astrophysics Library
Optical Design Software
Optical design application geared to telescopes and other optical systems. Features include layout design, optimization, standard expected output, ability to import ZMX and LNS files
This is a further development of Make Me a Star quick stellar merger alogrithm (Lombardi, J. etal. 2002/2003) which is now able to merge massive stars. Possible extension to WD/NS is also possible (see Gaborov, Lombardi, Portegies Zwart, 2007).
Make Me a Segregated Cluster is a project designed to simulate observational properties of (dynamically) mass segregated star clusters, such as surface brightness profiles of simulated clusters in different colour bands.
The Mars Rover Simulator project is based on the evolutionary robotics paradigm where an artificial agent acquires its skills through the process of artificial evolution. This simulator can be useful to evolve neural network controllers for the rover
MarsView tells you the visible longitude of Mars for a given time
MarsView tells you what part of Mars will be visible tonight in Central Time Zone, U.S.A.
The MeqTree project provides a modelling, simulation and calibration toolkit aimed at (but not exclusive to) radioastronomical applications.
Application for astronomical photos processing. Intended mainly for amateur astrophotography, for catching "beauty of the universe" rather than some serious scientific data. Includes automatic image registration.
When using a camera to record meteors at night, different objects appear. The recorded movies contain moving objects (meteors, birds, insects, etc.). The software classifies the recorded movies automatically by using concepts of artificial intelligence.
metric2energy reads in an arbitrary metric and algebraically calculates the christoffel symbols, Riemann, Ricci, and Einstein tensors from it, saving the result in a LaTeX source for beautiful pdfs.
