Measuring Dark Energy With Photometrically Classified Pan-STARRS Supernova: Bayesian Estimation Applied to Multiple Species Algorithm

2017-05-20T00:00:00Z (GMT) by Jones, David O.

This an implementation of the Bayesian Estimation Applied to Multiple Species (BEAMS) algorithm (Kunz, Bassett & Hlozek 2007). It simultaneously determines distances from Type Ia supernovae in a sample with a mixture of both Type Ia and core-collapse supernovae.  An explanation of the methodology behind this software and results generated using this software are published in:
