Mantid

The Mantid Framework has been created to visualise, manipulate and analyse neutron and muon scattering data. Mantid can be used though several Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) and programming languages, including:

  • MantidWorkbench, A modern general-purpose interface supporting a wide range of techniques and visualisation approaches.

  • Autoreduction services at specific facilities, including ISIS and the SNS.

  • API’s for Python and C++.

  • Training, links to further self paced courses and learning resources.

  • Mantid Matplotlib Plot Gallery and Examples, details of how to make pretty plots and manipulate them via Python.

  • Muon Training, focuses on the reduction and analysis of muon data collected from any of the ISIS Muon spectrometers via a Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Reference Documentation:
  • Algorithms, specific details for all of our algorithms including descriptions of all inputs and parameters .

  • Workbench provides details on the new graphical user interface with matplotlib-based plotting.

  • Concepts, deeper background information on the fundamental concepts within Mantid.

  • Interfaces, descriptions of the bespoke technique interfaces available.

  • Fitting Overview, details of all the supported fitting functions and minimization approaches.

  • Techniques, with further information relevant to some of the specific scientific techniques.

  • API’s for Python and C++.

  • Release Notes, a catalog of all of the release notes since v3.5.2.

Other Help and Documentation:
  • A forum, to ask for help, report issues, and discuss with other Mantid users.

  • A built in error-reporter. We really encourage you to use this, as it helps us to make Mantid more stable in future.
