Welcome to icecube_tools’s documentation!
icecube_tools package is designed to make it easier to interact with the publicly available information provided by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Python. You can use it to download datasets as well as load detector information like effective areas, energy resolution and angular resolution in a unified format. This information can then be brought together with simple astrophysical source models to run simulations of neutrino detections, or even to evaluate the likelihood and reproduce the results of the standard IceCube point source searches.
You can find more information on how to make use of
icecube_tools in the example notebooks listed below. The source code for these notebooks can be found in markdown format here in the GitHub repository. These markdown files can then be converted to
ipynb format by using
- Data access
- Detector model interface
- Effective area, angular resolution and energy resolution of earlier releases
- Source model interface
- Time dependent simulation
- Point source likelihood
- Time dependent point source analysis
- Event classes
