FAST-PT is a code to calculate quantities in cosmological perturbation theory at 1-loop (including, e.g., corrections to the matter power spectrum). The code utilizes Fourier methods combined with analytic expressions to reduce the computation time to scale as N log N, where N is the number of grid points in the input linear power spectrum.
Easy installation with pip:
pip install fast-pt
Full installation with examples:
- Make sure you have current version of numpy, scipy, and matplotlib
- download the latest FAST-PT release (or clone the repo)
- install the repo:
python setup.py install
- run the example:
cd examples && python fastpt_example.py
- hopefully you get a plot!
See the user manual for more details.
