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