Practical Workshop on BPASS models (19th September, 10 registered participants)
Workshop will take place in PS0.17. Participants are asked to bring their own laptop, and encouraged to bring problems/examples of what they would like to achieve for the final session.
11.30-12.30 Tutorial exercises/practical session for participants
1.30-3pm “Hack-day” session working on participants’ own projects/objectives
3.00-3.30pm Feedback, Requests and wrapping things up.
The current default version of BPASS is v2.2.1, including binaries, with imf135_300:
You'll need these files for the various tutorials we'll be looking at. They'll also be available on USB stick at the workshop.
It's also important to look at the associated manual: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FvwVO3bBiswoMYsBueDrAhfMKs2By0rr
The weblink for the BPASS python package Hoki (note: still in development and not yet generally released) is https://github.com/HeloiseS/hoki with documentation to be found at https://heloises.github.io/hoki/intro.html
Hoki is best installed from pip but a git clone will also be available on USB stick.
The technical introduction to BPASS presented at the workshop is available here.
There are five mini-tutorials which have been prepared by various team members using different files and programming languages.
2) A tutorial on dealing with the spectra/SED files using python (with Hoki, creator: Héloïse Stevance). You'll need to download the html here and open it in a local browser. You'll also need the data file from NED.
3) A tutorial on transient rates using python (with Hoki, creator: Héloise Stevance). See here.
4) A tutorial on BPASS HR diagrams using python (with Hoki, creator: Héloise Stevance). See here.
5) An example python script looking at supernova progenitors and the effects of varying their compositions on the HR diagram (creator: Ashley Chrimes). Uses the last line of every stellar model at z004 which is provided in this file to avoid you having to download the whole BPASS stellar model directory.
