venice is a mask utility program that reads a mask file (DS9 or fits type) and a catalogue of objects to: create a pixelized mask, find objects inside/outside a mask, or generate a random catalogue of objects inside/outside a mask. The program reads the mask file and checks if a point, giving its coordinates, is […]
The bash scripts and Python code to build the masks are available on GitHub. The masks to flag objects in the HSC-SSP area can be found here. The archive contains the masks and tools to flag objects potentially affected by a nearby star in the HSC-SSP footprint, as illustrated below: (Y-band image from the PDR1. […]

Title: High redshift galaxies : measurements and cosmological constraints This thesis focuses on the measure of galaxy redshifts and their cosmological applications. This work is conducted within the context of the standard cosmological model, for which we explain the principle as well as its limitations. In particular […]
Data catalogues (photo-z, lensing and PDFs) from Coupon et al. (2015) can be found here.
The problem I recently had to increase my disk storage capacity and I took this opportunity to completely revise my backup strategy. I used to only rely on Apple’s Time Machine using one (big) disk located right next to my computer, but it turns out not to be sufficient for a totally handy and secure […]
SWOT is a code to compute two-point statistics for very large data sets, based on “divide and conquer” algorithms, mainly, but not limited to: data storage in binary trees, approximation at large scale, parellelization (open MPI), bootstrap and jackknife resampling methods “on the fly”. It currently supports projected and 3D galaxy auto and cross correlations […]
