Module NameDescriptionVersion
astrometry.netIf you have astronomical imaging of the sky with celestial coordinates you do not know—or do not trust—then is for you. Input an image and we'll give you back astrometric calibration meta-data, plus lists of known objects falling inside the field of view.0.67
casa-4.7.2CASA, the Common Astronomy Software Applications package, is being developed with the primary goal of supporting the data post-processing needs of the next generation of radio astronomical telescopes such as ALMA and VLA. The package can process both interferometric and single dish data. 4.7.2
dftbplus-17.1DFTB+ is a fast and efficient versatile quantum mechanical simulation software package. It is based on the Density Functional Tight Binding (DFTB) method, containing almost all of the useful extensions which have been developed for the DFTB framework so far.17.1
ffmpegFFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video.3.2
gadgetviewerGadget File Viewer is a program for interactive visualization of Gadget N-body simulation snapshots.1.0.6
MUSICMUlti-Scale Initial Condition (MUSIC), a program to generate zoom initial conditions for cosmological simulations.1.53
nco-4.7.1The netCDF Operators (NCO) comprise about a dozen standalone, command-line programs that take netCDF, HDF, and/or DAP files as input, then operate (e.g., derive new fields, compute statistics, print, hyperslab, manipulate metadata, regrid) and output the results to screen or files in text, binary, or netCDF formats. NCO aids analysis of gridded and unstructured scientific data. The shell-command style of NCO allows users to manipulate and analyze files interactively, or with expressive scripts that avoid some overhead of higher-level programming environments. 4.7.1
OptiFDTDFinite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) is a powerful, highly integrated and user-friendly software application that enables the computer-aided design and simulation of advanced passive and non-linear photonic components.
