Welcome to GLOFRIM’s documentation!

GLOFRIM v1.0 was developed as part of Jannis Hoch’s PhD at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. The current version, GLOFRIM v2.0, was developed in a collaboration with Dirk Eilander (IVM, VU Amsterdam) and Hiroaki Ikeuchi (University of Tokyo).

Thanks to all contributors, co-authors, and collaborators!


While the code works, this documentation is currently still under development. If you discover any bugs or inconsistencies, we are happy to hear from you!
