Astronify: Astronomical data sonification

Astronify contains tools for sonifying astronomical data, specifically data series. Data series sonification takes a data table and maps one column to time, and one column to pitch. This technique is commonly used to sonify light curves, where observation time is scaled to listening time and flux is mapped to pitch. While Astronify’s sonification uses the columns “time” and “flux” by default, any two columns can be supplied and a sonification created.

SonAD: Sonification of astronomical data

Sonification extends the Astronify software (ascl:2408.005) to sonify a spatially distributed dataset. The package contains scripts to convert images into scatterplots and sonifications. The reproduce_image.py script takes an image file and reproduces it as a scatterplot by converting the input image to grayscale, extracting pixel values and generating scatter data based on these values, and then plotting the scatter data to create a visual representation of the image. The sonifications script converts the scatterplot data into an audio series and adjusts the note spacing and sonification range to customize an auditory representation. Sonification accepts images in PNG and JPG formats.

LADDER: Learning Algorithm for Deep Distance Estimation and Reconstruction

LADDER (Learning Algorithm for Deep Distance Estimation and Reconstruction) reconstructs the “cosmic distance ladder” by analyzing sequential cosmological data; it can also be applied to other sequential datasets with associated covariance information. It uses the apparent magnitude data from the Pantheon Type Ia supernovae compilation, fully incorporating covariance information to accurately predict mean values and uncertainties. It offers model-independent consistency checks for datasets such as Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) and can calibrate high-redshift datasets such as Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) without assuming any underlying cosmological model. Additionally, LADDER serves as a model-independent mock catalog generator for forecast-based cosmological studies.

Cue: Nebular emission modeling

Li, Yijia; Leja, Joel; Johnson, Benjamin D.; Tacchella, Sandro; Davies, Rebecca; Belli, Sirio; Park, Minjung; Emami, Razieh

Cue interprets nebular emission across a wide range of ionizing conditions of galaxies. The software, based on Cloudy (ascl:9910.001), emulates a neural net. It does not require a specific ionizing spectrum as a source, instead approximating the ionizing spectrum with a 4-part piece-wise power-law. Along with the flexible ionizing spectra, Cue allows freedom in [O/H], [N/O], [C/O], gas density, and total ionizing photon budget.

BELTCROSS2: Calculate the closest approaches of asteroids to meteoroid streams

BELTCROSS2 calculates the closest approaches of asteroid to the mean orbits of meteoroid streams. It is especially useful to check if an asteroid, which was observed to become active, passed through a meteoroid stream, and through which stream, a short time before the beginning of the activity. The basic characteristics of the closest encounter of the asteroid with the stream are provided by BELTCROSS2.

M_SMiLe: Magnification Statistics of Micro-Lensing

M_SMiLe computes an approximation of the probability of magnification for a lens system consisting of microlensing by compact objects within a galaxy cluster. It specifically focuses on the scenario where the galaxy cluster is strongly lensing a background galaxy and the compact objects, such as stars, are sensitive to this microlensing effect. The microlenses responsible for this effect are stars and stellar remnants, though exotic objects such as compact dark matter candidates (including PBHs and axion mini-halos) can contribute to this effect.

RadioSED: Radio SED fitting for AGN

RadioSED uses nested sampling to perform a Bayesian analysis of radio SEDs constructed from radio flux density measurements obtained as part of large area surveys (or in some limited cases, as part of targeted followup campaigns). It is a pure Python implementation, and is essentially a wrapper around Bilby (ascl:1901.011), the Bayesian inference library. RadioSED uses dynesty (ascl:1809.013) to perform the sampling steps, though other samplers could also be used. Users can make use of a pre-defined set of models and surveys from which to draw flux density measurements, or they can define their own models and provide their own input flux density measurements. All flux density measurements are referenced against the RACS-LOW survey, and source names and IDs from the survey catalogue are used as identifiers.

GRBoondi: AMR-based code to evolve generalized Proca fields on arbitrary fixed backgrounds

GRBoondi simulates generalized Proca fields on arbitrary analytic fixed backgrounds; it is based on the publicly available 3+1D numerical relativity code GRChombo (ascl:2306.039). GRBoondi reduces the prerequisite knowledge of numerical relativity and GRChombo in the numerical studies of generalized Proca theories. The main steps to perform a study are inputting the additions to the equations of motion beyond the base Proca theory; GRBoondi can then automatically incorporate the higher-order terms in the simulation. The code is written entirely in C++14 and uses hybrid MPI/OpenMP parallelism. GRBoondi inherits all of the capabilities of the main GRChombo code, which makes use of the Chombo library (ascl:1202.008) for adaptive mesh refinement.

21cmFirstCLASS: Generate initial conditions at recombination

21cmFirstCLASS extends 21cmFAST (ascl:1102.023) and interfaces with CLASS (ascl:1106.020) to generate initial conditions at recombination that are consistent with the input cosmological model. These initial conditions can be set during the time of recombination, allowing one to compute the 21cm signal (and its spatial fluctuations) throughout the dark ages, as well as in the proceeding cosmic dawn and reionization epochs, just as in the standard 21cmFAST. 21cmFirstCLASS tracks both the CDM density field δ_{c} as well as the baryons density field δ_{b}. In addition, the user interface in 21cmFirstCLASS has been improved and allows one to easily plot the 21cm power spectrum while including noise from the output of 21cmSense (ascl:1609.013).

SUSHI: Semi-blind Unmixing with Sparsity for Hyperspectral Images

SUSHI (Semi-blind Unmixing with Sparsity for hyperspectral images) performs non-stationary unmixing of hyperspectral images. The typical use case is to map the physical parameters such as temperature and redshift from a model with multiple components using data from hyperspectral images. Applying a spatial regularization provides more robust results on voxels with low signal to noise ratio. The code has been used on X-ray astronomy but the method can be applied to any integral field unit (IFU) data cubes.

Puglisi, Giuseppe; Mihaylov, Gueorgui; Panopoulou, Georgia V.; Poletti, Davide; Errard, Josquin; Puglisi, Paola A.; Vianello, Giacomo

FGCluster runs spectral clustering onto Healpix maps for parametric foreground removal, using a map encoding the feature to cluster as inputs. Pixel similarity is given by the geometrical affinity of each pixel in the sphere. FGCluster can also take an uncertainty map as an input, in which case the adjacency is modified in such a way that the pixel similarity accounts also for the statistical significance given by the pixel values in a map and the uncertainties.

PICASSO: Inpainter for point-sources for synchrotron and dust polarization

PICASSO (Python Inpainter for Cosmological and AStrophysical SOurces) provides a suite of inpainting methodologies to reconstruct holes on images (128x128 pixels) extracted from a HEALPIX map. Three inpainting techniques are included; these are divided into two main groups: diffusive-based methods (Nearest-Neighbors), and learning-based methods that rely on training DCNNs to fill the missing pixels with the predictions learned from a training data-set (Deep-Prior and Generative Adversarial Networks). PICASSO also provides scripts for projecting from full sky HEALPIX maps to flat thumbnails images, performing inpainting on GPUs and parallel inpainting on multiple processes, and for projecting from flat images to HEALPIX. Pretrained models are also included.

Stardust: Composite template fitting software

Kokorev, Vasily I.; Magdis, Georgios E.; Davidzon, Iary; Brammer, Gabriel; Valentino, Francesco; Daddi, Emanuele; Ciesla, Laure; Liu, Daizhong; Jin, Shuowen; Cortzen, Isabella; Delvecchio, Ivan; Giménez-Arteaga, Clara; Gómez-Guijarro, Carlos; Sargent, Mark; Toft, Sune; Weaver, John R.

Stardust extracts galaxy properties by fitting their multiwavelength data to a set of linearly combined templates. This Python package brings three different families of templates together: 1.) UV+Optical emission from dust unobscured stellar light; 2.) AGN heated dust in the MIR; and 3.) IR dust reprocessed stellar light in the NIR-FIR. Stardust's template fitting does not rely on energy balance. As a result, the total luminosity of dust obscured and dust unobscured stellar light do not rely on each other, and it is possible to fit objects such as SMGs where the energy balance approach might not be applicable.

BeyonCE: Beyond Common Eclipsers

BeyonCE (Beyond Common Eclipsers) explores the large parameter space of eclipsing disc systems. The fitting code reduces the parameter space encompassed by the transit of circumsecondary disc (CSD) systems with azimuthally symmetric, non-uniform optical-depth profiles to constrain the size and orientation of discs with a complex sub-structure. BeyonCE does this by rejecting disc geometries that do not reproduce the measured gradients within their light curves.

PySR: High-Performance Symbolic Regression in Python and Julia

PySR performs Symbolic Regression; it uses machine learning to find an interpretable symbolic expression that optimizes some objective. Over a period of several years, PySR has been engineered from the ground up to be (1) as high-performance as possible, (2) as configurable as possible, and (3) easy to use. PySR is developed alongside the Julia library SymbolicRegression.jl, which forms the powerful search engine of PySR. Symbolic regression works best on low-dimensional datasets, but one can also extend these approaches to higher-dimensional spaces by using "Symbolic Distillation" of Neural Networks. Here, one essentially uses symbolic regression to convert a neural net to an analytic equation. Thus, these tools simultaneously present an explicit and powerful way to interpret deep neural networks.

GalCraft: Building integral-field spectrograph data cubes of the Milky Way

GalCraft creates mock integral-field spectroscopic (IFS) observations of the Milky Way and other hydrodynamical/N-body simulations. It conducts all the procedures from inputting data and spectral templates to the output of IFS data cubes in FITS format. The produced mock data cubes can be analyzed in the same way as real IFS observations by many methods, particularly codes like Voronoi binning (ascl:1211.006), pPXF (ascl:1210.002), line-strength indices, or a combination of them (*e.g.*, the GIST pipeline, ascl:1907.025). The code is implemented using Python-native parallelization. GalCraft will be particularly useful for directly comparing the Milky Way with other MW-like galaxies in terms of kinematics and stellar population parameters and ultimately linking the Galactic and extragalactic to study galaxy evolution.

Kete

The kete tools are intended to enable the simulation of all-sky surveys of solar system objects. This includes multi-body physics orbital dynamics, thermal and optical modeling of the objects, as well as field of view and light delay corrections. These tools in conjunction with the Minor Planet Centers (MPC) database of known asteroids can be used to not only plan surveys but can also be used to predict what objects are visible for existing or past surveys.

The primary goal for kete is to enable a set of tools that can operate on the entire MPC catalog at once, without having to do queries on specific objects. It has been used to simulate over 10 years of survey time for the NEO Surveyor mission using 10 million main-belt and near-Earth asteroids.

RadioSunPy: A Robust Preprocessing Pipeline for RATAN-600 Solar Radio Observations Data

This paper introduces RadioSunPy, an open-source Python package developed for accessing, visualizing, and analyzing multi-band radio observations of the Sun from the RATAN-600 solar complex. The advancement of observational technologies and software for processing and visualizing spectro-polarimetric microwave data obtained with the RATAN-600 radio telescope opens new opportunities for studying the physical characteristics of solar plasma at the levels of the chromosphere and corona. These levels remain some difficult to detect in the ultraviolet and X-ray ranges. The development of these methods allows for more precise investigation of the fine structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere, thereby deepening our understanding of the processes occurring in these layers. The obtained data also can be utilized for diagnosing solar plasma and forecasting solar activity. However, using RATAN-600 data requires extensive data processing and familiarity with the RATAN-600. The package offers comprehensive data processing functionalities, including direct access to raw data, essential processing steps such as calibration and quiet Sun normalization, and tools for analyzing solar activity. This includes automatic detection of local sources, identifying them with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) active regions, and further determining parameters for local sources and active regions. By streamlining data processing workflows, RadioSunPy enables researchers to investigate the fine structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere more efficiently, contributing to advancements in solar physics and space weather forecasting.

vortex-p: Helmholtz-Hodge and Reynolds decomposition algorithm for particle-based simulations

vortex-p analyzes the velocity fields of astrophysical simulations of different natures (for example, SPH, moving-mesh, and meshless) usually spanning many orders of magnitude in scales involved. The code performs Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition (HHD); that is, it can decompose the velocity field into a solenoidal and an irrotational/compressive part Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition. vortex-p internally uses an AMR representation of the velocity field and can, in principle, capture the full dynamical range of the simulation. The package can also perform Reynolds decomposition (i.e., the decomposition of the velocity field into a bulk and a turbulent part). This is achieved by means of a multi-scale filtering of the velocity field, where the filtering scale around each point is determined by the local flow properties. vortex-p expands the vortex (ascl:2206.001) code, which had been coupled to the outputs of the MASCLET code, to a fully stand-alone tool capable of working with the outcomes of a broad range of simulation methods.

forcepho: Generative modeling galaxy photometry for JWST

Baldwin, James O.; Nelson, Erica; Johnson, Benjamin D.; Oesch, Pascal A.; Tacchella, Sandro; Illingworth, Garth D.; Gibson, Justus; Hartley, Abby

Forcepho infers the fluxes and shapes of galaxies from astronomical images. It models the appearance of multiple sources in multiple bands simultaneously and compares to observed data via a likelihood function. Gradients of this likelihood allow for efficient maximization of the posterior probability or sampling of the posterior probability distribution via Hamiltonian Monte Carlo. The model intrinsic galaxy shapes and positions are shared across the different bands, but the fluxes are fit separately for each band. Forcepho does not perform detection; initial locations and (very rough) parameter estimates must be supplied by the user.

Exo-REM: 1D self-consistent radiative-equilibrium model for exoplanetary atmospheres

The 1D radiative-equilibrium model Exo-REM simulates young gas giants far from their star and brown dwarfs. Fluxes are calculated using the two-stream approximation assuming hemispheric closure. The radiative-convective equilibrium is solved assuming that the net flux (radiative + convective) is conservative. The conservation of flux over the pressure grid is solved iteratively using a constrained linear inversion method. Rayleigh scattering from H2, He, and H2O, as well as absorption and scattering by clouds (calculated from extinction coefficient, single scattering albedo, and asymmetry factor interpolated from precomputed tables for a set of wavelengths and particle radii), are also taken into account.

ARK implements Computational Fluid Dynamics applications, such as Euler and all-Mach regime, on a Cartesian grid with MPI+Kokkos. It provides a performance-portable Kokkos implementation for compressible hydrodynamics and performs simulations of convection without any approximation of Boussinesq nor anelastic type. It adapts an all-Mach number scheme into a well-balanced scheme for gravity, which preserves arbitrary discrete equilibrium states up to the machine precision. The low-Mach correction in the numerical flux allows ARK to be more precise in the low-Mach regime; the code is well suited for studying highly stratified and high-Mach convective flows.

SSOF: Data-driven models for extremely precise radial velocity (EPRV) spectra

StellarSpectraObservationFitting (SSOF) measures radial velocities and creates data-driven models (with fast, physically-motivated Gaussian Process regularization) for the time-variable spectral features for both the telluric transmission and stellar spectrum measured by Extremely Precise Radial Velocity (EPRV) spectrographs (while accounting for the wavelength-dependent instrumental line-spread function). Written in Julia, SSOF provides two methods for estimating the uncertainties on the RVs and model scores based on the photon uncertainties in the original data. For quick estimates of the uncertainties, the code looks at the local curvature of the likelihood space; the second method for estimating errors is via bootstrap resampling.

fastPTA: Constraining power of PTA configurations forecaster

Depta, Paul Frederik; Domcke, Valerie; Franciolini, Gabriele; Pieroni, Mauro; Babak, Stanislav; Falxa, Mikel

fastPTA forecasts the sensitivity of future Pulsar Timing Array (PTA) configurations and assesses constraints on Stochastic Gravitational Wave Background (SGWB) parameters. The code can generate mock PTA catalogs with noise levels compatible with current and future PTA experiments. These catalogs can then be used to perform Fisher forecasts of MCMC simulations.

Heracles: Harmonic-space statistics on the sphere

Heracles manages harmonic-space statistics on the sphere. It takes catalogs of positions and function values on the sphere and turns them into angular power spectra and mixing matrices. Heracles is both a Python library, to be used in notebooks or data processing pipelines, and a tool for running measurements from the command line using a configuration file.

Falcon-DM: N-body code for inspirals in DM spikes

Falcon-DM simulates intermediate mass ratio inspirals in DM spikes. This lightweight N-body code is written in C++ and is specifically tuned for simulating IMRIs embedded in dark matter (DM) spikes. It features a 2nd order Drift-Kick-Drift integrator using the symplectic HOLD scheme and symmetrized, individual, time-steps for accurate time-integration. Falcon-DM also offers post-Newtonian (PN) effects up to PN2.5 using the auxiliary velocity algorithm.
