Research – Software
Many of the scripts I use for processing and analysis are available in a github repository. That repository is a collecting point for several sets of code focused on observing, numerical simulations, and preparing talks and papers. Additional software I have made available includes:
- IDL SED modeling code used in “Modeling the Infrared Emission in Cygnus A” (Privon et al. 2012, ApJ, 747, 46).
- Modified version of the Identikit 2 modeling tool (original code). Used in Privon et al. 2013, ApJ, 771, 120.
- Expanded library of merger models for Identikit. Some of these are direct from the original Identikit release and others are scaled versions of the same mass model, for use in exploring higher mass-ratio encounters.
I also host a few sets of potentially useful document templates:
- Writing articles in markdown. This is a template/demo and a pandoc invocation to enable writing of research articles in (pandoc) markdown. Presently there are short demonstrations for AASTeX, A&A, and MNRAS. The demo for AASTeX is most complete, as I have typically used AASTeX to write papers. Contributions of templates for other journals are welcome.
- Optical/radio observing logs in markdown. These are intended to be filled out in the plain-text and can then be converted to PDF (or other formats) with something like pandoc.
- LaTeX template for astronomy dissertations at the U. of Virginia. This is based on a template made by earlier UVa students and includes some modifications I made for my dissertation.
