A code to study the fragmentation of filaments (FragMent)

FragMent is a python/C module which collates a number techniques used to study fragmentation in filaments. It also performs model selection using a frequentist and Bayesian approach to find the best descriptor of a filament's fragmentation. The code is open-source.

The accompanying paper can be found here. It details the sensitivities of each method and explains in more detail a number of the procedures one should use when analysing fragmentation.

While the code was designed to investigate filament fragmentation the functions are general and may be used for any set of 2D points to study more general cases of fragmentation.
