A Bayesian formalism for the generalised
The BGLS tool calculates the Bayesian Generalized Lomb-Scargle periodogram as described in Mortier et al. (2014). It is written in Python (tested on Python 2.7).
The code contains the definition of the algorithm, takes as input three arrays with a time series, a dataset and errors on those data, and returns arrays with sampled periods and the periodogram values at those periods.
In order to run, it requires the following python packages:
* numpy (http://www.numpy.org/) * mpmath (http://mpmath.org/)
