Welcome to pymultinest’s documentation!


This is the documentation for two python modules for Bayesian analysis, parameter estimation and model selection: pymultinest and pycuba.

  • PyMultiNest interacts with MultiNest, a Nested Sampling Monte Carlo library.

  • PyCuba interacts with cuba, a library for various numerical integration methods.

Citing PyMultiNest

Please cite MultiNest <pymultinest> and Cuba <pycuba> accordingly, depending on which algorithm you connect your Python program to using this package.

If you find PyMultiNest enables your research, please consider citing my publication to give back for the time I invested:

Buchner et al. 2014, A&A (get BibTex)

In this paper, I introduce the software package officially, and apply the methodology of applying MultiNest to X-ray spectral analysis.
