Code Repository for Exoring Transit Calculations
Download the package:
$ git clone http://github.com/facom/exorings.git
Or download it as a zip file from this url.
Run a test:
$ python exorings.py
This test will tell you which python packages are required to use the exorings code.
Calculate basic ring transit properties:
$ python exorings-basic.py fi=1.5 fe=2.35 theta=30.0 ir=80.0
Output include: transit depth (in ppm), total transit duration (in hours), duration of full transit (in hours), observed radius (pobs), observed asterodensity (rhoobs).
When using exorings code for research purposes please cite the following paper:
