NIFTy -- Numerical Information Field Theory
===========================================

**NIFTy** [1]_, [2]_, "\ **N**\umerical **I**\nformation **F**\ield **T**\heor\ **y**\ ", is a versatile library designed to enable the development of signal inference algorithms that are independent of the underlying spatial grid and its resolution.
Its object-oriented framework is written in Python, although it accesses libraries written in C++ and C for efficiency.
NIFTy offers a toolkit that abstracts discretized representations of continuous spaces, fields in these spaces, and operators acting on fields into classes.
