ECCSAMPLES: Bayesian Priors for Orbital Eccentricity

ECCSAMPLES: Bayesian Priors for Orbital Eccentricity

Abstract: ECCSAMPLES solves the inverse cumulative density function (CDF) of a Beta distribution, sometimes called the IDF or inverse transform sampling. This allows one to sample from the relevant priors directly. ECCSAMPLES actually provides joint samples for both the eccentricity and the argument of periastron, since for transiting systems they display non-zero covariance.
