The following tutorials walk you through performing orbit fits with
orbitize. To get started, read through “Formatting Input,” “OFTI
Introduction,” and “MCMC Introduction.” To learn more about the
orbitize API, check out “Modifying Priors” and “Modifying MCMC Initial Positions.”
For an advanced plotting demo, see “Advanced Plotting,” and to learn
about the differences between OFTI and MCMC algorithms,
we suggest “MCMC vs OFTI Comparison.”
We also have a bunch of tutorials designed to introduce you to specific features of our code, listed below.
Many of these tutorials are also available as jupyter notebooks here.
If you find a bug, or if something is unclear, please create an issue
on GitHub! We’d love any feedback on how to make
A note about the tutorials: There are many ways to interact with the
orbitize code base, and each person on our team uses the code differently.
Each tutorial has a different author, and correspondingly a different
style of using and explaining the code. If you are confused by part of
one tutorial, we suggest looking at some of the others (and then contacting
us if you are still confused).
