Text file containing the tabulated likelihood for the tensor-to-scalar ratio, r, computed using the "direct likelihood calculation" described in Section 9.3.1 of Barkats et al. and Section 11.1 of BICEP2 2014 I. This likelihood curve corresponds to the black curve from the middle panel of Figure 10 from BICEP2 2014 I.
