Dust InfraRed Tool Box Help


From here you can get help on the following items (in order of how you will likely use them in DIRT):

Initial Model Parameter Selection How you go about selecting models from the database.
Interactive Display (Plot Controller) How to use the Plot Controller to view the dust emission models, including details on what all the widgets and buttons in the display window do.
Viewing Model Details For any model, there are auxiliary plots of dust grain temperature, density, flux as a function of both frequency and beam size, etc. This page tells you how to view them.
Adding Your Own Data How to enter your own observed data into DIRT. This allows you to overlay your data on model plots and find the model(s) that best fit your data.
Chi-squared Fitting How you can find which model(s) best fit your data, based on a Chi-squared statistic.
