Accessible Asteroseismology with Lightkurve

Accessible Asteroseismology with Lightkurve

In this software demo I run through the Lightkurve package's frequency-domain analysis tools, and the new tools used to estimate rudimentary stellar and asteroseismic parameters for solar-like oscillators.

The majority of the talk was a demonstration using these tools on a Kepler Main-Sequence target in a Jupyter Notebook. An annotated version of this notebook can be found here: https://github.com/ojhall94/TASC5_lightkurve/blob/master/Notebooks/Colab-Rudy-example.ipynb, with a link to a Google Colab version.

There are also examples with K2 and TESS data, which can be found on on GitHub here: https://github.com/ojhall94/TASC5_lightkurve

Note: there are hyperlinks taking you to guides on how to collaborate and contribute to lightkurve, which are accessible if you download the slides!

  8. 23 Jul 19 asteronomer tinyurl.com/lk-seis we’ll work through a quick

    tutorial feel free to join in! better to show than tell
  9. 23 Jul 19 asteronomer tinyurl.com/lk-seis by you can help out

    on this too! reporting issues (please do this!) joining in conversations contributing yourself! getting others involved (e.g. undergrads!) [1] [2] [3] [4]
  10. 23 Jul 19 asteronomer tinyurl.com/lk-seis you can do really simple

    quick-look asteroseismology with lightkurve and so can your undergraduates, colleagues, and anybody else with a basic grasp on Python!
  11. 23 Jul 19 asteronomer tinyurl.com/lk-seis you can get started with

    this right now Read the documentation Install lightkurve with pip Work with us on GitHub https://www.lightkurve.org pip install lightkurve --user https://github.com/KeplerGO/lightkurve Enjoy!
