Automated Line Fitting Algorithm

ALFA measures fluxes in emission line spectra, such as those of planetary nebulae and HII regions, using a genetic algorithm to rapidly optimise fits to large numbers of lines simultaneously. It can subtract night sky emission lines before fitting the nebular lines if necessary. It can read plain text files containing 1D spectral data, or FITS files containing 1D, 2D or 3D datasets.

Installing alfa command is simple. just copy one of the above commands for your operating system and paste it into terminal. This command is available for Debian, Ubuntu, Kali and Raspbian operating systems. Once you run the command it will install the latest version of alfa 2022 package in your OS.
