Welcome to the GAMMA Library

This site is a collaboration of Karl Young at UCSF and Brian Soher at Duke.

Recent work on GAMMA and this website is supported by a grant from the NIH.

GAMMA Overview : Software for simulating magnetic resonance phenomena.

GAMMA is written in C++. Some of GAMMA's API's have been wrapped in Python, using SWIG. That wrapper is called PyGAMMA.

The original version of GAMMA was written by Scott A. Smith and Tilo Levante under the guidance of B.H. Meier and R.R. Ernst at the ETH in Zürich.

Some additional information about GAMMA can be retrieved from the following site:

Example of real-world applications of GAMMA, see:

Obtaining and Building GAMMA (and PyGAMMA)

Obtaining and Building the GAMMA Library - Learn how to get a copy of the source code and what to do with it once you get it.

If you're interested in PyGAMMA, we provide prebuilt binaries for most platforms. We also have instructions on how to build PyGAMMA.

Proper Citation in Papers and Presentations

Proper reference should be given, using the citation below, when GAMMA simulations are utilized in papers and/or presentations.

Technical Documentation for Developers

If you're interested in more technical details about GAMMA/PyGAMMA including notes from the developers themselves, we have a whole section dedicated to technical documentation.
