To install the package:

```
julia> Pkg.add("Cosmology")
```

Then, to load into your session:

```
julia> using Cosmology
```

First, pick a cosmological model using the `cosmology`

function,
which takes the following options:

h = 0.69 | Dimensionless Hubble constant |

OmegaK = 0 | Curvature density, Ω_{k} |

OmegaM = 0.29 | Matter density, Ω_{m} |

OmegaR = Ω_{γ} + Ω_{ν} |
Radiation density, Ω_{r} |

Tcmb = 2.7255 | CMB temperature (K), used to compute Ω_{γ} |

Neff = 3.04 | Effective number of massless neutrino species, used to compute Ω_{ν} |

w0 = -1 | CPL dark energy equation of state, w = w0 + wa*(1-a) |

wa = 0 | CPL dark energy equation of state, w = w0 + wa*(1-a) |
