South Pole Telescope (SPT)

Cluster Likelihood 2012 Code

2012 Cluster Code

This page provides data products associated with the SPT cluster catalog for the first two years of the SPT-SZ survey. The data is described in detail in astro-ph/1203.5775, Reichardt et al. ApJ 763 (2013) 127. .

Files are included for use of the subset of clusters described by astro-ph/1112.5435, Benson et al. ApJ 763 (2013) 147.

The requisite instructions and files are included for adding the SPT_CL likelihood to the October 2012 version of cosmomc. Note that the paper used the July 2011 version of cosmomc.

The above information is taken from this SPT page
