Harmonic: Learnt harmonic mean estimator

McEwen, Jason D.; Wallis, Christopher G. R.; Price, Matthew A.; Docherty, Matthew M.; Spurio Mancini, Alessio

harmonic learns an approximate harmonic mean estimator (referred to as a "learnt harmonic mean estimator") from posterior distribution samples to compute the marginal likelihood required for Bayesian model selection. Using a large number of independent Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) chains from another package such as emcee (ascl:1303.002), harmonic uses importance sampling to learn a new target distribution in order to optimize an approximate harmonic estimator while minimizing its variance.

stringgen: Scattering based cosmic string emulation

Price, Matthew A.; Mars, Matthijs; Docherty, Matthew M.; Spurio Mancini, Alessio; Marignier, Augustin; McEwen, Jason D.

stringgen creates emulations of cosmic string maps with statistics similar to those of a single (or small ensemble) of reference simulations. It uses wavelet phase harmonics to calculate a compressed representation of these reference simulations, which may then be used to synthesize new realizations with accurate statistical properties, *e.g.*, 2 and 3 point correlations, skewness, kurtosis, and Minkowski functionals.

CosmoPower: Machine learning-accelerated Bayesian inference

CosmoPower develops Bayesian inference pipelines that leverage machine learning to solve inverse problems in science. While the emphasis is on building algorithms to accelerate Bayesian inference in cosmology, the implemented methods allow for their application across a wide range of scientific fields. CosmoPower provides neural network emulators of matter and Cosmic Microwave Background power spectra, which can replace Boltzmann codes such as CAMB (ascl:1102.026) or CLASS (ascl:1106.020) in cosmological inference pipelines, to source the power spectra needed for two-point statistics analyses. This provides orders-of-magnitude acceleration to the inference pipeline and integrates naturally with efficient techniques for sampling very high-dimensional parameter spaces.
