LAL is the massive library of the LIGO collaboration, with all the software used for analysis of gravitational-wave data. Installation can be tricky, so here is my attempt…
- GWpython: python modules for gravitational-wave research
This is a list of python codes and modules (by me and by others) to perform various tasks in gravitational-wave research. If your code is not here, please let me know and I’ll add it!
- svn2git: Farewell SVN, I’m a GIT guy now!
At some point I made the big jump to GIT, I’m a new man and I left SVN behind. These notes describe how to convert old SVN to GIT storing the repository’s history.
