Model dispersion with PRISM; an alternative to MCMC for rapid analysis of models

This is the documentation for the PRISM package, an efficient and rapid alternative to MCMC methods for optimizing and analyzing scientific models. PRISM was made by Ellert van der Velden (@1313e) as part of a Ph.D under supervision of Prof. Alan Duffy at Swinburne University of Technology. It is written in pure Python 3 and publicly available on GitHub.

The documentation of PRISM is spread out over several sections:
