[ascl:2406.028] Redback: Bayesian inference package for fitting electromagnetic transients

Redback provides end-to-end interpretation and parameter estimation of electromagnetic transients. Using data downloaded by the code or provided by the user, the code processes the data into a homogeneous transient object. Redback implements several different types of electromagnetic transients models, ranging from simple analytical models to numerical surrogates, fits models implemented in the package or provided by the user, and plots lightcurves. The code can also be used as a tool to simulate realistic populations without having to fit anything, as models are implemented as functions and can be used to simulate populations. Redback uses Bilby (ascl:1901.011) for sampling and can easily switch samplers and likelihoods.
