Asteroid Light Curves from the Palomar Transient Factory Survey: Rotation Periods and Phase Functions from Sparse Photometry

We fit 54,296 sparsely sampled asteroid light curves in the Palomar Transient Factory survey to a combined rotation plus phase-function model. Each light curve consists of 20 or more observations

A three-parameter magnitude phase function for asteroids

The K2 Mission: Characterization and Early Results

The K2 mission will make use of the Kepler spacecraft and its assets to expand upon Kepler’s groundbreaking discoveries in the fields of exoplanets and astrophysics through new and exciting

Opposition Effect of Asteroids

Abstract The opposition effect behavior is analyzed for 33 asteroids with well-measured magnitude-phase curves. It is shown that surface albedo is the main factor influencing the amplitude and width

pfsspy: A Python package for potential field source surface modelling

The PFSS equations assume that there is zero electrical current in the domain of interest, leading to the equations for magnetic fields in solar and stellar atmospheres.

SciPy 1.0: fundamental algorithms for scientific computing in Python

An overview of the capabilities and development practices of SciPy 1.0 is provided and some recent technical developments are highlighted.

Computing in science.

Systematic mistake analysis of digital computer programs

The purpose of work reported here has been to develop a systematic way in which a programmer may test, all realistic combinations of input data, and hence all portions of a given program.
