abcpmc 0.1.2

approximate bayesian computing with population monte carlo

A Python Approximate Bayesian Computing (ABC) Population Monte Carlo (PMC) implementation based on Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) with Particle Filtering techniques.

The abcpmc package has been developed at ETH Zurich in the Software Lab of the Cosmology Research Group of the ETH Institute of Astronomy.

The development is coordinated on GitHub and contributions are welcome. The documentation of abcpmc is available at and the package is distributed over PyPI.
