rvmethod: Radial Velocity Method for Detecting Exoplanets

Has various functions designed to implement the Hermite-Gaussian Radial Velocity (HGRV) estimation approach of Holzer et al. (2020) <arXiv:2005.14083>, which is a particular application of the radial velocity method for detecting exoplanets. The overall approach consists of four sequential steps, each of which has a function in this package: (1) estimate the template spectrum with the function estimate_template(), (2) find absorption features in the estimated template with the function findabsorptionfeatures(), (3) fit Gaussians to the absorption features with the function Gaussfit(), (4) apply the HGRV with simple linear regression by calling the function hgrv(). This package is meant to be open source. But please cite the paper Holzer et al. (2020) <arXiv:2005.14083> when publishing results that use this package.
