[CosmoMC] Errors with setting omegach2=0

Post by Mason Ng » July 13 2017

I'm trying to set omegach2 = 0 for a mini-investigation but I'm getting errors. The output file shows:

Code: Select all

MCMC.f90: Couldn't start after 1000 tries - check starting ranges
application called MPI_Abort(MPI_COMM_WORLD, -922294816) - process 0
In: PMI_Abort(-922294816, application called MPI_Abort(MPI_COMM_WORLD, -922294816) - process 0)

srun: error: compute-e1-027: task 3: Killed

In the params.ini file, I made the following changes

Code: Select all

param[omegach2] = 0.0 #yes, fixed
param[omegak] = -0.008 -0.3 0.3 0.001 0.001
CosmoMC seems to be running for omegach2=0.04 at the moment, though I'm hoping to get it to run with omegach2=0. This might be because I should be assigning a prior to more parameters? Please advise, thanks.

I expect for the specified theta values it cannot solve for a value of H0 in the allowed range once you set omch2=0. Make sure you start with parameters that correspond to non-ridiculous H0 and theta values.
