Bandpower Likelihoods

Tarball containing data necessary for constructing bandpower likelihoods following the method of Hamimeche & Lewis (2008). See Section 9.1 of Barkats et al. . File contains:

Bandpower Likelihood Code

Gzipped tar archive containing python code and the relevant above data products to calculate the Hamimeche&Lewis likelihood. The python code also contains a specific wrapper to generate the HL likelihood versus r using the BB spectrum. et al..
