Tracing light rays with RAYTRIX

Raytrix is FORTRAN code to trace light rays through the dark matter distribution generated by the Very Large Simulations performed by the Virgo Consortium. Raytrix has an angular dynamic range between 0.2 arcmin and a few degrees. Therefore it is especially suited for a numerical study of weak gravitational lensing. The weak lensing data sets by Raytrix are partly available on request from Takashi Hamana.
