This calculator determines the dark energy figure of merit, defined as 1/(σwaσwp), as well as the expected cluster counts, for a large cluster survey, with several user-specified parameters. It assumes either a single observable-mass relation with self-calibration or two different observable-mass relations with cross-calibration.

Additionally, the calculator optimizes follow ups to a large cluster survey using a simulated annealing algorithm, as described in Wu, Rozo, and Wechsler 2009 (W09).
