This is the development page for the PromptNuFlux project.

PromptNuFlux computes the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux E3Φ(GeV2/(cm2ssr)), including the total associated theory uncertainty, for a range of energies between E=103 GeV and E=107.5 GeV. The prompt flux is computed as an interpolation of the results obtained in arXiv:1511.06346.
Results are available for five different parametrizations of the input cosmic ray flux: BPL, H3P, H3A, H14a, H14b.

For usage, please see the README in the tarball.
