SKA SDP Parametric Model¶
The SDP parametric model is a collection of equations and software code that model the performance aspects of the SDP. We created an interactive software interface for performing computations and displaying their results so that people can easily interact and experiment with the model. This is accomplished using Python and Jupyter notebooks, which are documented below.
A central goal of the notebooks is to compute performance metrics and general sizing estimates for the SDP. Refer to the parametric model document for the fundamental choices of which algorithms are modelled. The basic assumption is that we employ a combination of w-snapshots and w-stacking combined with facetting for distribution.
