Tutorials

1. Getting started with Lightkurve

The first set of tutorials covers the basics of using Lightkurve. This includes getting to grips with the basic Lightkurve objects and how to load and work with data products from the Kepler, K2, and TESS missions. For a complete listing of all classes and methods, please consult the API docs.

1.1. Lightkurve objects

1.2. Working with Kepler & TESS data products

2. Creating and correcting light curves

The second section focuses on the various ways in which light curves can be extracted from the pixel data, and on the removal of instrument noise (often referred to as systematics) from those light curves.

2.1. Creating light curves

2.2. Identifying instrumental noise

2.3. Removing instrumental noise

3. Science examples

In the final section we demonstrate scientific data analysis tasks which astronomers commonly apply to time series data.

3.1. Exoplanet examples

3.2. Rotation rates and periodic signals

3.3. Asteroseismology examples

3.4. Other examples
