[ascl:2401.004] pyPETaL: A Pipeline for Estimating AGN Time Lags

pyPETAL produces cross-correlation functions, discrete correlation functions, and mean time lags from multi-band AGN time-series data, combining multiple different codes (including pyCCF (ascl:1805.032), pyZDCF, PyROA (ascl:2107.012), and JAVELIN (ascl:1010.007)) used for active galactic nuclei (AGN) reverberation mapping (RM) analysis into a unified pipeline. This pipeline also implements outlier rejection using Damped Random Walk Gaussian process fitting, and detrending through the LinMix algorithm. pyPETAL implements a weighting scheme for all lag-producing modules, mitigating aliasing in peaks of time lag distributions between light curves. pyPETAL scales to any combination of internal code modules, supporting a variety of computational workflows.
