We provide the following documents:

  • Brief presentation (SLS PLATO week #5) given during the PLATO Week #5 held in Porto (October 2017) ;
  • A technical note (sls).

The generation of a given simulation requires the edition of a configuration file in YAML format.

To execute PSLS, type:

 psls.py -P -V psls.yaml

The option -V makes the program verbose while the option -P generates some plots.

As output, the program generates the simulated light-curve in an ASCII file named <code>ID</code>.dat, where is the <code>ID</code> of the star ID (any arbitrary number). By default a single light-curve obtained by averaging over all the camera is generated. With the option -F, the program generates a time series correspond to the merge of the mean light-curves obtained for each group of camera (the light-curves of each individual camera are in that case averaged over a camera group basis).

Here below two papers in connection with the simulator:
