## About Parallel Bilby

Parallel Bilby is a Python library that lets you perform gravitataional-wave parameter estimation using a parallelized nested sampling algorithm. Using Parallel bilby, the run time of an inference problem can be optimised to be almost linear to number of the parallel computational units. Hence, it is possible to attain speeds several tens of factors faster than sequential Bilby.

Details on how Parallel Bilby works are described in the Parallel Bilby paper.
