(2019)](Farrow et al 2019) for details. + 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. You can take a look at the [demo here]( or you can download the git repository with:
