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 prepare the commit log message.
# Called by "git commit" with the name of the file that has the
# commit message, followed by the description of the commit
# message's source.  The hook's purpose is to edit the commit
# message file.  If the hook fails with a non-zero status,
# the commit is aborted.
# To enable this hook, rename this file to "prepare-commit-msg".

# This hook includes three examples.  The first comments out the
# "Conflicts:" part of a merge commit.
# The second includes the output of "git diff --name-status -r"
# into the message, just before the "git status" output.  It is
# commented because it doesn't cope with --amend or with squashed
# commits.
# The third example adds a Signed-off-by line to the message, that can
# still be edited.  This is rarely a good idea.
