  • Scikit-Criteria

    Scikit-Criteria is a collection of multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) methods integrated into a scientific Python stack, is open source and commercially usable.
    The tool allows MCDA data representation, preprocessing, evaluation, and visualization in an environment similar to scikit-learn.

  • oTree

    oTree is an open-source and online software for implementing inter-active experiments in the laboratory, online, the field, or combinations thereof. oTree does not require the installation of software on subjects’ devices, and it can run on any device that has a web browser, be that a desktop computer, a tablet, or a smartphone. Deployment can be internet-based without a shared local network or local-network-based even without internet access.

    The programming language is Python, a popular, open-source programming language.

    oTree.org provides the source code, a library of standard game templates, and demo games that anyone can play.

  • Yatel

    Yatel allows the creation of distance-based user profiles in an OLAP network and their multidimensional analysis through a process of exploration.
    The code is a reference implementation in constant beta.

  • Pyedra

    Pyedra is a python library that allows you to fit three different models of asteroid phase functions into your observations.

    Phase curves of asteroids are very important for the scientific community as they can provide the information needed for diameter and albedo estimates. Given the large amount of surveys currently being carried out and planned for the next few years, we believe it is necessary to have a tool capable of processing and providing useful information for such an amount of observational data.

  • Galaxychop

    GalaxyChop is a Python package that tackles the dynamical decomposition problem by using clustering techniques for stellar galactic components in phase space.

    It runs in numerical N-body simulations populated with semi-analytical models and full hydrodynamical simulations, such as Illustris TNG and EAGLE.
