Light curve model for eclipsing binary stars and transiting exoplanets

Project Description
====
ellc
====

Generate light curves or radial velocity curves for a binary
star system with the ellc light curve model. [1]_

Installation of this module requires python >2.7 and numpy >1.10.0

To install this module linux-like systems run the following command
$ python setup.py install
or to install on your system if you have root access
$ sudo python setup.py install

Routines in this module:

lc(t_obs, radius_1, radius_2, sbratio, incl, ... )

rv(t_obs, radius_1, radius_2, sbratio, incl, t_zero, period, a, q, ...)

fluxes(t_obs, radius_1, radius_2, sbratio, incl, ... )

ldy.LimbGravityDarkeningCoeffs()

Documentation and examples for each routine are included in the file headers
and can be viewed from within python in the normal way, e.g.,
>>> import ellc
>>> print(ellc.ldy.__doc__)

The easiest way to fit a single light curve is use ellc_emcee (you will need
to add the appropriate /bin/ directory to your path). Run the command
ellc_emcee and follow the prompts. You can grab the output from this script in
the log file and use this as the basis of a new input file for this script.
Use ./ellc_emcee.py -h to see command-line options.

paper.
