Welcome to the documentation of the astrotools!

This documentation describes all functionality implemented in the astrotools. The astrotools are a lightweight python library for physics of Ultra-high energy cosmic rays with particular focus on arrival direction tasks. We support functionalities in the following fields:

  • Coordinate transformations

  • Cosmic Ray Observables

  • Galactic magnetic field lensing

  • Setup simulations of arrival scenarios

  • Tools for the Pierre Auger Observatory


The official repository of the astrotools is on the Gitlab server of the RWTH Aachen University (use this link for opening issues and pushing code): https://git.rwth-aachen.de/astro/astrotools

The astrotools are aslo mirrored to Gitlab: https://gitlab.com/MWirtz/astrotools
