[ascl:2201.014] nProFit: n-Profile Fitting tool

nProFit analyzes surface brightness profiles. It obtains the best-fit structural, scale, and shape parameters of star clusters in Hubble Space Telescope images of nearby galaxies. The code fits dynamical models and can derive physically-relevant parameters. Among these are central volume and luminosity densities, total masses and luminosities, central velocity dispersions, core radius, half-light radius, tidal radius, and binding energy.
