Description

This dataset contains the primary data used in: "Multi-epoch X-ray burst modelling: MCMC with large grids of 1D simulations", Johnston et al. (2020). In this work, we interpolated and sampled a grid of 3840 KEPLER burst models using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods to produce posterior distributions for the system parameters of the "Clocked Burster", GS 1826-238. Provided here is the full burst model grid and the raw MCMC sample chains. More details on the files, and how to load them, are provided in README.md
