Fisher Matrix Toolbox (Fisher4Cast ) (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Yabebal Fantaye
The Fisher4Cast suite provides a standard, tested tool set for general Fisher Information matrix prediction and forecasting for use in both research and education
The Fisher4Cast suite provides a standard, tested tool set for general Fisher Information matrix prediction and forecasting for use in both research and education. The toolbox design is robust and modular, allowing for easy additions and adaptation while keeping the user interface intuitive and easy to use. Fisher4Cast is completely general but the default is coded for cosmology. It provides parameter error forecasts for cosmological surveys providing distance, Hubble expansion and growth measurements in a general, curved FLRW background.
The release package contains documentation (Manual, Quickstart guide and sample code to produce figures) in addition to the code which can be run in both command line and GUI format (the latter launched via FM_GUI.m).
This release is version 2.1, updates include a change to the Dark Energy Task Force Figure of Merit, which is no longer the inverse of the area of the 2-sigma ellipse, but the square root of the determinant of the reduced Fisher matrix. This brings it in line with standard usage.
For a detailed description of all the changes made in this release, please see the Readme.txt in the Fisher4Cast folder.
Tested under Windows, Linux and to a lesser extent, under Mac.
