  Description     : Next-generation radio interferometric imaging

PURIFY is an open-source code that provides functionality to perform radio
interferometric imaging, i.e. to recover images from the incomplete Fourier
measurements taken by radio interferometric telescopes. PURIFY leverages
recent developments in the field of compressive sensing and convex optimization.

PURIFY is written in C and contains the high-level functionality required for 
adio interferometric imaging, such as modelling radio telescopes and posing
imaging as a convex optimisation problem. Low-level functionality to solve the
resulting convex optimisation is factored into the open-source companion code,
SOPT, also written by the authors of PURIFY. For further background please see
the following papers.

It will maintained within the Debian Astronomy Working Group. A git repository
will be created on alioth [1].
