Welcome to SPHGR’s documentation!

This is a multi-purpose data reduction suite designed to read and then process GADGET, TIPSY, or HDF5 binary outputs from GADGET. Then general idea is to be a one-stop-shop to simulation analysis and data access. The resulting data is saved to the disk in distinct object files which allows for easy examination/plotting. The general operation of the code looks something like this:

  1. run galaxy finder
  2. run DM halo finder
  3. run membersearch:
  • assign gas & star particles to halos
  • assign DM particles to halos
  • calculate galaxy global properties
  • assign galaxies to DM halos
  • determine central/satellite
  1. find most-massive progenitors of each galaxy
  2. run LOSER to determine magnitudes
