MCMole3D: Digging into the Galaxy


Documentation Package

Monte-Carlo MOlecular Line Emission MCMOLE3D is a python package which simulates the 3D molecular cloud emission in the Milky Way. In particular, it can simulate both the unpolarized and polarized emission coming from the first rotational line of Carbon Monoxide (CO, \(J=1-0\)), which has been extensively observed during last decades. The goal of this package is to compare the simulated emission with the one observed by recent full sky survey from Planck satellite.

For a full description of the first scientific results and polarization forecasts please refer to Puglisi et al 2017 .
