leavitt

A set of scripts for computing Leavitt's law and variants for variable stars.

In its current iteration, the scripts are orchestrated by a Makefile, which downloads the input data, performs all the calculations, and produces plots. If you would like all results, run make all. If you would only like the calculations, run make results. If you would like plots, run make plots.

After running make all, the output/ folder will contain a number of plots, and a text file. The text file, named Period_Luminosity_Coefficients.txt, has two rows and 5 columns. The columns correspond to the V- I- J- H- and K-bands, respectively. The rows contain the slope and zero-point of the PL relation, respectively. The names and contents of the plots should be self-explanatory.

The input/ folder will contain all of the files downloaded by the Makefile, and the temp/ folder will contain a number of intermediate files.
