This archive contains source code for the paper "Exact analytical results for integrate-and-fire neurons driven by excitatory shot noise" by Droste and Lindner, 2017. Specifically, it contains a Python implementation of the analytical formulas derived in that paper (allowing to calculate firing rate, CV and stationary voltage distribution of general integrate-and-fire neurons driven by excitatory shot noise, as well as power spectrum and rate-response of leaky integrate-and-fire neurons with such input) and C++ code implementing a Monte-Carlo simulation to estimate these quantities. A sample Jupyter notebook to play around with the analytics is included, as are scripts to reproduce the figures from the paper.

# An example hook script to verify what is about to be committed
# by applypatch from an e-mail message.
# The hook should exit with non-zero status after issuing an
# appropriate message if it wants to stop the commit.
# To enable this hook, rename this file to "pre-applypatch".
