Tutorials on analyzing halo catalogs

By following these tutorials, you will learn how to use Halotools to analyze a halo catalog. Each of the examples below is in principle stand-alone, so that you can pick and choose from any of the pages below according to the kind of analysis you are most interested in. In cases where material covered in a previous example is necessary to understand some aspect of one of the more complicated later calculations, a link to the previous example will always be provided.

Basic examples

Each of the examples in this section gives a specific demonstration of how to perform a straightforward calculation on a halo catalog. By reading through these examples, you will gain a working knowledge of all the major functions in the mock_observables package.
