Interpretable GPs for stellar rotation (Part 3)
This is a (long overdue) continuation of a previous post, in which I discussed the development of an interpretable Gaussian process for stellar light curves. This post is mainly a wrapper for a talk I gave a couple months ago on the topic, so if you have 20 minutes (and an interest in stellar light curve modeling), please check it out!
Below is the talk I gave at the CCA on November 5. It touches on many of the same things I covered in the previous two posts in this series (here and here). I've actually made quite a bit more progress on the problem since I gave that talk, so if you're interested, check out the (nearly complete) draft of the paper here. The code,
starry_process, is also nearly production-ready. You can install it from source here. I'm still working on the documentation, but the API and a couple examples are ready to go.
