Chapter 1: Strong LensingΒΆ

In chapter 1, we introduce you to strong gravitational lensing and the core PyAutoLens API.

The chapter contains the following tutorials:

Tutorial 0: Visualization - Setting up visualization.

Tutorial 1: Grids - Uniform grids of (y,x) coordinates used for ray-traicng.

Tutorial 2: Profiles - Analytic profiles representing light and mass distributions.

Tutorial 3: Galaxies - The objects that make up a strong lens.

Tutorial 4: Planes - Groups of galaxies at a common redshift.

Tutorial 5: Ray Tracing - Using Grids and Galaxies to perform strong lens ray-tracing!

Tutorial 6: More Ray Tracing - Advanced strong lens ray-tracing.

Tutorial 7: Data - Loading and inspecting telescope imaging data of a strong lens.

Tutorial 8: Fitting - Fitting data with a strong lens model.

Tutorial 9: Summary - A summary of the chapter.
