# Reference¶

The **Spirit** framework is a scientific project.
If you present and/or publish scientific results or
visualisations that used Spirit, you should add a reference.

## The Framework¶

If you used any components of this framework please add a reference to our GitHub page. You may use e.g. the following TeX code:
