Description

  • PTPlot is a tool for exploring the gravitational wave power spectrum from first-order phase transitions, and evaluating the likelihood of detecting a signal with the LISA mission.
  • The results plotted by this tool are based on the paper Detecting gravitational waves from cosmological phase transitions with LISA: an update, arXiv:1910.13125, which has been published in JCAP. Please cite both that paper, and this Zenodo deposit, if possible.
  • The source for PTPlot is available at https://bitbucket.org/dweir/ptplot.

This version is a snapshot of the v1.1.0 release. Notable changes include:

  • Additional documentation, including a technical note authored by Jenni Häkkinen describing the physics of PTPlot. This technical note is also directly included with this Zenodo deposit.
  • Bug fixes to the plotting code. Old multithreading code has been removed.
  • The LISA Cosmology Working Group watermark has been removed.
