Tip! Refine or expand your search. Authors are sometimes listed as 'Smith, J. K.' instead of 'Smith, John' so it is useful to search for last names only. Note this is currently a simple phrase search.

[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.
