ARoME library

This library is designed to generate analytical Rossiter-McLaughlin (RM) effects as described in the paper : G. Boué, M. Montalto, I. Boisse, M. Oshagh, N.C. Santos : 2012, New analytical expressions of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect adapted to different observation techniques. It models the Doppler-shift of a star during a transit measured by the following techniques:

This library provides a C interface and, optionally, a Fortran 77 or 2003 interface to be called by the application.
