Analysis of strong gravitational lensing data is important in this era of precision cosmology. The objective of the present study is to directly compare the analysis of strong gravitational lens systems using different lens model software and similarly parameterized models to understand the differences and limitations of the resulting models. The software lens model translation tool, HydraLens, was used to generate multiple models for four strong lens systems including COSMOS J095930+023427…

TLDR
HydraLens simplifies the creation of model files for four strong gravitational lens model software packages, including Lenstool, Gravlens/Lensmodel, glafic and PixeLens, using a custom designed GUI for each of the four codes that simplifying the entry of the model for eachof these codes, obviating the need for user manuals to set the values of the many flags and in each data field.
Comparison of Strong Gravitational Lens Model Software I. Time delay and mass calculations are sensitive to changes in redshift and are model dependent
Analysis of strong gravitational lensing depends on software analysis of observational data. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the behavior of strong gravitational lens modeling software with
Golden gravitational lensing systems from the Sloan Lens ACS Survey – II. SDSS J1430+4105: a precise inner total mass profile from lensing alone
We study the Sloan Lens ACS (SLACS) survey strong-lensing system SDSS J1430+4105 at zl = 0.285. The lensed source (zs = 0.575) of this system has a complex morphology with several subcomponents. Its
LENSVIEW : software for modelling resolved gravitational lens images
We have developed a new software tool, lensview, for modelling resolved gravitational lens images. Based on the lensmem algorithm, the software finds the best-fitting lens mass model and source
A systematic review of strong gravitational lens modeling software
Abstract Despite expanding research activity in gravitational lens modeling, there is no particular software which is considered a standard. Much of the gravitational lens modeling software is
Non-parametric strong lens inversion of SDSS J1004+4112
In this article, we study the well-known strong lensing system SDSS J1004+4112. Not only does it host a large-separation lensed quasar with measured time-delay information, but several other lensed
A multi-wavelength study of the gravitational lens COSMOS J095930+023427
We present a multi-wavelength study of the gravitational lens COSMOS J095930+023427 (z=0.89), together with the associated galaxy group located at $z\sim0.7$ along the line of sight and the lensed
Strong lensing in RX J1347.5−1145 revisited
We present a revised strong lensing mass reconstruction of the galaxy cluster RX J1347.5-1145. The X-ray luminous cluster at redshift z=0.451 has already been studied intensively in the past. Based
Computational Methods for Gravitational Lensing
Modern applications of strong gravitational lensing require the ability to use precise and varied observational data to constrain complex lens models. I discuss two sets of computational methods for
Strong-Lensing Analysis of MS 1358.4+6245: New Multiple Images and Implications for the Well-Resolved z=4.92 Galaxy
We present a strong-lensing analysis of the galaxy cluster MS 1358.4+6245 (z = 0:33), in deep 6-band ACS/HST imaging. In addition to the well-studied system at z = 4:92, our modelling method uncovers
