We provide these codes for two reason

  • Evolution - feel free to study, apply, extend, and build upon what we have accomplished.
  • Efficiency - we have put considerable effort into making the codes fast and efficient. We hope to receive feedback; if you have any suggestions for improving these codes or simply making them more elegant – please let us know

The codes come with no warranty – we try to make them error free and as researcher friendly as possible; however, certain errors may remain. The demos and documentation are rather scant; if you want to use these codes, be prepared to spend a significant amount of time understanding them.

We gratefully acknowledge the help of (in alphabetical order and in addition to registered GitHub contributors): Danny Campbell, Richard Carson, Marek Giergiczny, William Greene, Arnie Hole, Klaus Moeltner, Nada Wasi, Maciej Wilamowski, and Kenneth Train, whose examples, comments or suggestions we followed when working on these codes.
