PLATO Stellar Light-curve Simulator (SLS): Simulate stochastically-excited oscillations and associated stellar and instrumental background noises

Project description

PSLS: the PLATO Solar-like Light-curve Simulator

Simulate solar-like oscillators representative for PLATO observations. The simulator includes planetary transits, stochastically-excited oscillations, granulation and activity background components, as well as instrumental sources of noise representative for PLATO. The program also manages the existence of a time shift between groups of telescope. Planetary transits are included following Mandel & Agol (2002) equations (see http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2002ApJ…580L.171M) and using the Python implementation by Ian Crossfield (http://www.astro.ucla.edu/~ianc/) at UCLA.

Changes history: - 0.5: can perform simulationfor a given input set of theoretical frequencies (i.e. from a given .gsm file) ; new parameters included in the configuration file .yaml ; various minor improvements - 0.4: mino changes - 0.3: first working version
