Spot Oscillation And Planet

A tool for the fast computation of
photometry and radial velocity induced by stellar spots

SOAP is a free tool that simulates the effects of dark spots and bright plages on the surface of a rotating star, computing their expected radial velocity and photometric signatures.

The code is described in I. Boisse, X. Bonfils & N.C. Santos 2012, A&A
as well as its use, some tests, and applications.
