Welcome to the distribution page of fitOmatic

This is a model-fitting prototyping tool meant to test multi-wavelength model-fitting. It is developed by F. Millour (mainly) with contributions from A. Meilland, B. Valat, V. Girault.

It provides the tools to define simple geometrical models and to adjust the model's parameters in a most convenient way.

A subpart of it, self-cal, is distributed separately.

A bit of history

An early version of this software was initially developed in 2005 to allow for the interpretation of heavily chromatic datasets coming out from the AMBER instrument (namely Gamma Velorumis and Eta Carinae data). An interaction with the JMMC group motivated at that time this development, to test new ideas to input chromatic information in interferometric model-fitting.

It was also the basis to develop an idea from R. Petrov (the so-called "chips imaging" concept). This concept was at the origin of the awareness that the wavelength-differential phases can bring a decisive information about the content of a source's image.

In 2007, the software was versionned under CVS, and was given a name: fitOmatic. It was later switched to trac/SVN in 2010.

In 2015, fitOmatic is meant to be distributed.
