Fisher4Cast

The Fisher4Cast suite provides a standard, tested tool set for general Fisher Information matrix prediction and forecasting for use in both research and education. The toolbox design is robust and modular, allowing for easy additions and adaptation while keeping the user interface intuitive and easy to use. Fisher4Cast is completely general but the default is coded for cosmology. It provides parameter error forecasts for cosmological surveys providing distance, Hubble expansion and growth measurements in a general, curved FLRW background.

Fisher4Cast Users' Manual
Authors: Bruce A. Bassett (SAAO, UCT), Yabebal Fantaye (SISSA, SAAO, UCT), Renée Hlozek (Oxford, SAAO, UCT), Jacques Kotze (UCT)

This is the Users' Manual for the Fisher Matrix software Fisher4Cast and covers installation, GUI help, command line basics, code flow and data structure, as well as cosmological applications and extensions. Finally we discuss the extensive tests performed on the software.

Growing up in an age where hoverboots, weekend breaks to Mars and swooshing automatic doors seemed an absolute certainty, we've found ourselves a little disappointed by the subsequent lack of the promised lunar thrills.
However, while we may be in the gutter, we can still look at the stars, and that's a job that's going to be a lot more interactive and fun thanks to Google's fantastic new mobile phone application called 'Star Droid'

JMARS
The JMARS client is designed to be small, but it can accumulate a lot of data from the server with heavy use. The minimum recommended system requirements are:

* Java Runtime 1.5 or later (required)
* A 24 bit video sub-system (required)
* DSL, Cable, T-1 or better network connection (128Kbps) (recommended)
* 512MB of RAM (recommended)
* Display capable of a resolution of 1024x768 (recommended)

Your Sky, the interactive planetarium of the Web. You can produce maps in the forms described below for any time and date, viewpoint, and observing location. If you enter the orbital elements of an asteroid or comet, Your Sky will compute its current position and plot it on the map. Each map is accompanied by an ephemeris for the Sun, Moon, planets, and any tracked asteroid or comet. A control panel permits customisation of which objects are plotted, limiting magnitudes, colour scheme, image size, and other parameters; each control is linked to its description in the help file.
Your Sky provides three ways to view the sky with links, where appropriate, among the various presentations.

Title: Starburst99 for Windows
Authors: Claus Leitherer, Julia Chen

We describe a Windows compatible version of the evolutionary synthesis code Starburst99. Starburst99 for Windows was developed from the public UNIX based version at STScI. We converted the original Fortran77 source code into a version for a Win32 environment with an Absoft Fortran Pro x86 compiler. Extensive testing showed no significant numerical differences in comparison with the previous UNIX version. The software application consists of the source code, executable, and a number of auxiliary files. The package installs on any PC running Windows 2000, XP, or Vista and can be obtained as freeware. We give an overview of the different running modes and provide instructions for getting started with the initial set-up.

Starburst99 is a widely used software package for evolutionary synthesis of young stellar populations. Its goal is to support astronomers in their interpretation of spectra, spectral energy distributions and other observational data of star clusters and galaxies.

Find_Orb
Find_Orb can take a set of observations of an asteroid or comet, given in MPC (Minor Planet Center) format or the NEOIBO or AstDyS formats, and find the corresponding orbit. The MPC format is a "standard" used by most astrometry software, including Charon.
Find_Orb can determine orbits of artificial Earth satellites and for satellites of other planets. It exists as a 32-bit Windows program, and as  C/C++ source code  that can be compiled for a Windows or Linux or Mac console application.
