The Accelerated Reionization Era Simulations (ares) code was designed to rapidly generate models for the global 21-cm signal. It can also be used as a 1-D radiative transfer code, stand-alone non-equilibrium chemistry solver, or global radiation background calculator.
A few papers on how it works:
- 1-D radiative transfer: Mirocha et al. (2012).
- Uniform backgrounds & global 21-cm signal: Mirocha (2014).
This documentation is very much a work in progress. Feel free to email me if you find gaps or errors.
To make sure everything is working, a quick test is to generate a realization of the global 21-cm signal using all default parameter values:
import ares sim = ares.simulations.Global21cm() sim.run() anl = ares.analysis.Global21cm(sim) ax = anl.GlobalSignature()
