Exorings

Code Repository for Exoring Transit Calculations

Quick start

  • Download the package:

    Using git:

    $ 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).
