User Guide

The User Guide provides documentation for all of Lentil’s features and capabilities. It is generally organized by topic area.

Brand new users should start with the Package overview and Quickstart.

Detailed information on any specific class or method can be found in the API reference.


Many of the topics covered in this user guide and the API reference require some understanding of the underlying physics that govern the phsyical and optical processes modeled by Lentil.

This documentation does not attempt to be a guide to these topics but does provide links and references to supporting materials where applicable.
