Trident DocumentationΒΆ

Trident is a Python package for creating synthetic absorption-line spectra from astrophysical hydrodynamics simulations. It utilizes the yt package to read in simulation datasets and extends it to provide realistic synthetic observations appropriate for studies of the interstellar, circumgalactic, and intergalactic media.

To avoid confusion, make sure you are viewing the correct documentation for the version of Trident you are using: stable vs. development. For more information, see Versions of Trident.
