Abstract: This three-component package provides a Pythonic implementation of the Nested Sampling integration algorithm for Bayesian model comparison and parameter estimation. It offers multiple implementations for constrained drawing functions and a test suite to evaluate the correctness, accuracy and efficiency of various implementations. The three components are:
a modular framework for nested sampling algorithms (nested_sampling) and their development;a test framework to evaluate the performance and accuracy of algorithms (testsuite); andUltraNest, a fast C implementation of a mixed RadFriends/MCMC nested sampling algorithm.
