Here we provide code which performs Bayesian inference on a sample of 17 Galactic double neutron stars (DNS) in order to investigate their mass distribution. Each DNS is comprised of two neutron stars (NS), a recycled NS and a non-recycled (slow) NS. We compare two hypotheses: A - recycled NS and non-recycled NS follow an identical mass distribution, and B - they are drawn from two distinct populations. Within each hypothesis we also explore three possible functional models: gaussian, two-gaussian (mixture model), and uniform mass distributions. @@ -7,7 +7,7 @@ You can take a look at the [demo here]( `git clone`. -We highly recommend reading [*The mass distribution of Galactic double neutron stars*; Nicholas Farrow, Xing-Jiang Zhu, Eric Thrane,]( along with this demonstraion. + ## Requirements ### Without running inference (just demonstration & data analysis):
