The LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC) Science Requirements Document v1 Released Data Products


This tarball includes software and data products associated with the DESC Science Requirements Document (SRD) v1.  See the "Executive Summary and User Guide" in the enclosed PDF of the DESC SRD for instructions on how to use and cite those products.  The DESC SRD is described on arXiv as follows:

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC) will use five cosmological probes: galaxy clusters, large scale structure, supernovae, strong lensing, and weak lensing. The Science Requirements Document (SRD) quantifies the expected dark energy constraining power of these probes individually and together, with conservative assumptions about analysis methodology and follow-up observational resources based on our current understanding and the expected evolution within the field in the coming years. We then define requirements on analysis pipelines that will enable us to achieve our goal of carrying out a dark energy analysis consistent with the Dark Energy Task Force definition of a Stage IV dark energy experiment.
