This module contains utility functions for some astrophysical scenarios:

  • source for astrophysical source models

  • population for astrophysical population models

  • darkmatter for dark matter spatial and spectral models

The gammapy.astro sub-package is in a prototyping phase and its scope and future are currently being discussed. It is likely that some functionality will be removed or split out into a separate package at some point.

Getting started#

The gammapy.astro namespace is empty. Use these import statements:

from gammapy.astro import source
from gammapy.astro import population
from gammapy.astro import darkmatter

Please refer to the Getting Started section of each sub-package for a further introduction.
