the Exoplanet Population Observation Simulator

EPOS is a software package to simulate observations of exoplanet populations. It provides an interface between planet formation simulations and exoplanet surveys such as Kepler. EPOS can also be used to estimate planet occurrence rates and the orbital architectures of planetary systems.

EPOS is written in Python and hosted on github. Follow the instructions there to download and install.

NEW You can now install EPOS with pip:

pip install epospy

(possibly preceded by sudo -H)

How to use

EPOS runs from the command line. The quickest way to familiarize yourself with the code is to copy the test and example scripts to a local directory:

>>> import EPOS
>>> EPOS.scripts.install()

These scripts demonstrate some of the basic functionality of EPOS. Output wil appear in the terminal and plots in the png/ folder.
