This module contains procedures and generic interfaces for computing the cosmic rates of celestial phenomena.
Specifically, the cosmic rate densities of formations of two celestial objects are currently implemented in this module:
The rate of occurrence of a cosmic phenomenon can be readily computed by multiplying its cosmic rate density with the differential comoving volume element of the Universe at the given redshift.
The following two generic interfaces return the normalized differential comoving volume element for a variety of possible input arguments:
See the generic interfaces above and examples below for computing of the cosmic rates of events from their cosmic rate densities.
