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 A/Prof. Alan Duffy at Swinburne University of Technology. It is written in pure Python 2/3 and publicly available on GitHub.
This is the documentation of the v1.0.x branch of PRISM, which still supports Python 2.7. Starting with v1.1.0, PRISM no longer supports Python 2.7, and this branch will not be maintained.
The documentation of PRISM is spread out over several sections:
- Getting started
- The PRISM pipeline
- ModelLink: A crash course
- Using PRISM
- Community guidelines
Special thanks to Alan Duffy, Darren Croton, Simon Mutch and Manodeep Sinha for providing many valuable suggestions and constructive feedback points. Huge thanks to James Josephides for making the PRISM logo.
