Gravitational-wave Detector Characterisation¶
GWDetChar is a python package for gravitational-wave detector characterisation and data quality. It is designed for use with ground-based interferometric detectors such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), Virgo, and GEO600.
To get started, simply import the core module:
GWDetChar is best installed with conda:
conda install -c conda-forge gwdetchar
but can also be installed with pip:
python -m pip install gwdetchar
Note, users with
LIGO.ORG credentials have access to a software
container with a regularly-updated build of GWDetChar. For more
information please refer to the
LSCSoft Conda documentation.
See the contributions guide for the recommended procedure for proposing additions/changes.
