hammurabi README

(current version X.01.00)

hammurabi is an open-source (GNU General Public License v3) HEALPix-based tool for simulating full-sky Galactic foreground observables. Products of hammurabi include polarized synchrotron emission, thermal dust emission, dispersion measure, Faraday depth and deflection of ultra-high-energy-cosmic-rays. Essential physical inputs/modelings required during simulation include Galactic magnetic fields, dust distribution and electron distribution, etc. This is a modular C++ framework which is friendly to user customized models. In version X, we mainly focus on providing reliable and scalable numerical implementations.

Please check our WIKI PAGE for more detailed technical information.

Please cite the original Waelkens et al. (2009) paper if you use hammurabi.

version X.01

Currently we are in TESTING release, with limited amount of features available. Not all modelings have been thoroughly cross-checked with original hammurabi! A full release of version X.02 is scheduled in 2018-2019.
