Lensing likelihood 2016

This tarball contains the ACTPol lensing power spectrum likelihood used in Sherwin et. al. (2016) and associated data products. The likelihood code is written in Fortran and contains routines that interface with CosmoMC. It calculates a chisquare after comparing lensing power spectrum bandpowers with an input theory power. It also implements linear corrections to the theory curve that forward model the dependence on cosmology of the normalization of the lensing estimator and the N1 correction. Instructions on using this likelihood for parameter estimation with CosmoMC are included in the README.md file.
