SERVAL: SpEctrum Radial Velocity AnaLyser

SERVAL: SpEctrum Radial Velocity AnaLyser

Abstract: SERVAL calculates radial velocities (RVs) from stellar spectra. The code uses least-squares fitting algorithms to derive the RVs and additional spectral diagnostics. Forward modeling in pixel space is used to properly weight pixel errors, and the stellar templates are reconstructed from the observations themselves to make optimal use of the RV information inherent in the stellar spectra.
