Package: wnpp Owner: Thibaut Paumard <email@example.com> Severity: wishlist * Package name : gyoto Version : 1.0 (coming soon) Upstream Author : Thibaut Paumard <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Frederic Vincent at obspm fr * URL : http://gyoto.obspm.fr * License : GPL-3+ Programming Lang: C++ Description : General relativistic geodesic integration and ray-tracing Gyoto aims at providing a framework for computing orbits and ray-traced images in General relativity. It consists in a shared library (libgyoto0/libgyoto0-dev), utility programs (in the gyoto package), and a plug-in for the Yorick programing language (in yorick-gyoto). With it you can basically: - compute the trajectory of a body in the vicinity of a compact object (e.g. a black hole); - compute the image of an astronomical source (a star, an accretion disk...) in the vicinity of a compact object (such images are affected by strong gravitational lensing effects). This source package would thus produce the following binary packages: libgyoto0: relativistic geodesic integration and ray-tracing libgyoto0-dev: development files for libgyoto gyoto: General relativistic ray-tracing yorick-gyoto: General relativistic geodesic integration for the Yorick language gyoto-doc: documentation for the Gyoto library I am interested in maintaining this package because: 1- I am one of the primary upstream authors and I want Gyoto to be actually usable and used; 2- there is no alternative in the Debian archive. Actually, Gyoto is the first relativistic ray-tracer to be publicly available, not to mention open source. Best regards, Thibaut.
