BICEP2 HL Likelihood Code

Download Links:

Gzipped tar archive containing python code and the relevant above data products to calculate the Hamimeche & Lewis likelihood for BICEP2. This code is not meant to produce the likelihood for the tensor-to-scalar ratio tabulated in B2_3yr_rlikelihood_20140314.txt. This python code enables the user to generate a likelihood for an arbitrary input spectrum. This code contains a specific wrapper which shows how to generate the likelihood versus r using the BICEP2 BB spectrum.
