If you are interested in using the tools developed by the MSCP, in this page you can find a number of tutorials designed to help you take the first steps. Most of our tools at the moment come bundled in the pymuon-suite Python package, but they also make use of other Python libraries, such as the Atomic Simulation Environment and Soprano.

pymuon-suite was deployed specifically to aid muon computational science: is a library that can be found on Github and is released under a GNU v3.0 open source license. Once installed, pymuon-suite provides the user both with a Python API to use for custom programs and with a series of pre-packaged scripts that can be used to interpret some of the most common muon experiments.

Some tutorials require at least a working knowledge of Python, others don’t. We will keep the tutorials classified depending on the skills that they require. Don’t worry though - none of them are very hard to get through. Even if you don’t know how to use a command line or how to write Python scripts, this could be a good point to start!
