# Starfish documentation¶

Starfish is a framework used for robust spectroscopic inference. While this package was designed around the need to infer stellar properties such as effective temperature $$T_{\rm eff}$$, surface gravity $$\log(g)$$, and metallicity $$[{\rm Fe}/{\rm H}]$$ from high resolution spectra, the framework could easily be adapted to any type of model spectra: galaxy spectra, supernovae spectra, or spectra of unresolved stellar clusters. For an introduction to the problems that Starfish solves, please see our website. For more technical information, please see our paper.
