Use of Healpix, camb, CLASS, cosmomc, compilers, etc.

trouble with standard run: \"paramranges not found\&quo

Post by Albin Nilsson » January 26 2017

I'm trying to do a generic run to reproduce some standard plots and results. I have not defined any new parameters or changed the code anywhere.
I keep getting the error message: "parameter ranges not found: param1", although I haven't defined param1 at all.
Does anyone have any ideas? See below for my params.ini file:

Code: Select allp>

#Sample parameters for cosmomc used as a generic sampler
#Write your likelihood function in calclike.f90

generic_mcmc=T
parameterization=generic

#You can either use numbered parameters, or, usually better, define a parameter name file as below

You should not be doing a generic run if you want to reproduce the standard plots.

A generic run will not invoke camb or any of the standard likelihoods at all.

Hi, and thank for replying. By generic run, I mean a standard one. I haven't changed anything, just trying to reproduce some standard results.
Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

You have

generic_mcmc=T
parameterization=generic

that are not in the supplied test_planck.ini (which is probably the best starting point for non-grid single Planck-like runs).
