lcsim creates artificial light curves using two algorithms. The first simulates Gaussian distributed light curves following a specific power spectral density (PSD) freely selectable by the user. The second algorithm simulates light curves following a specific PSD and matching a specific probability density function (PDF). The package provides methods to resample the simulated light curves and add "observational" noise. Furthermore, the package provides an interface to a SQLite3-based database to store and access the simulations.
