Dot is a forward model for starspot rotational modulation in Python. It is similar to fleck (Morris 2020), but written for sampling with PyMC3. The source code is available on GitHub.


This project is built from lessons learned during the Frontier Development Lab 2020 Heliophysics/Starspots challenge, which was a collaboration between: Tansu Daylan, Lisseth Gavilan, Daniel Giles, J. Emmanuel Johnson, Anna Jungbluth, Brett Morris, Andrés Muñoz-Jaramillo, Stela Ishitani Silva & Sairam Sundaresan.
