Ships in 3-5 business days
"Analyzing Light Curves: a Practical Guide" is exactly what the title says: a practical guide. It covers enough theory for the reader actually to understand what the methods mean, but doesn't get bogged down in theoretical details, while boldly outlining both simple and very sophisticated methods. Topics include detecting when a signal is present, making mathematical models of trends, and detailed period analysis. This book aims to reach as wide an audience as possible, including advanced students and amateur astronomers who want to be able to understand the data they themselves have so painstakingly collected.
