yt powers a number modules that provide specialized analysis tools relevant to one or a few domains. Some of these are internal to yt, but many exist as external packages, either maintained by the yt project or independently.
Internal Analysis Modules¶
These modules exist within yt itself.
- Cosmology Calculator
- Clump Finding
- X-ray Emission Fields
- Auxiliary Data Files for use with yt’s Photon Simulator
External Analysis Modules¶
These are external packages maintained by the yt project.
yt Astro Analysis¶
yt_astro_analysis package houses most of the astrophysical
analysis tools that were formerly in the
import. These include halo finding, custom halo analysis, synthetic
observations, and exports to radiative transfer codes. See

yt_attic contains former yt analysis modules that have
fallen by the wayside. These may have small bugs or were simply
not kept up to date as yt evolved. Tools in here are looking for
a new owner and a new home. If you find something in here that
you’d like to bring back to life, either by adding it to
yt Astro Analysis or as part of your own package, you are welcome
to it! If you’d like any help, let us know! See

There are a number of independent, yt-related packages for things like visual effects, interactive widgets, synthetic absorption spectra, X-ray observations, and merger-trees. See the yt Extensions page for a list of available extension packages.
