Seismology.estimate_numax(method='acf2d', **kwargs)

Returns the frequency of the peak of the seismic oscillation modes envelope.

At present, the only method supported is based on using a 2D autocorrelation function (ACF2D). This method is implemented by the estimate_numax_acf2d function which accepts the parameters numaxs, window_width, and spacing. For details and literature references, please read the detailed docstring of this function by typing lightkurve.seismology.estimate_numax_acf2d? in a Python terminal or notebook.
