GAMBIT -- a Global And Modular Bsm Inference Tool
Mar. 3, 2016 3:27 PM
Modern science usually provides both lots of data and very complicated models for the part of reality it is trying to describe. Sometimes there is even so much data, and the models are so complicated, that it becomes difficult to make full use of the data in deciding between models, or finding their properties. The main goal of the GAMBIT project is to write a software tool to help physicists do just that.
