afterglowpy is a Python package for modelling Gamma-ray burst afterglows. It computes synchrotron radiation from an external shock and is capable of handling both structured jets and off-axis observers.

For details of the physics, approximations, and numerical implementation please see Ryan et al. 2020.

You can install afterglowpy with pip:

$ pip install afterglowpy

This documentation is still a little thin. Please read the Quickstart, check out the examples on Github:, and contact the author if you have any questions or issues.


If you use afterglowpy in your work, please refer to the package by name and cite the paper Ryan et al. 2020.
