The latest documentation can be found here. An alternative that is kept up-to-date less frequently is here.


This package requires Numpy, Scipy, and Matplotlib. Certain advanced features require the GNU Scientific Library (GSL)


The dehnendf and shudf disk distribution functions can be corrected to follow the desired surface-mass density and radial-velocity-dispersion profiles more closely (see 1999AJ….118.1201D). Calculating these corrections is expensive, and a large set of precalculated corrections can be found here [tar.gz archive].


Some development notes can be found on the wiki.
