The Light Curve Fitter: A novel application for deconvolving two superimposed sinusoidal waves developed using the Agile Software Development Lifecycle

Dulaimi, Salam; Fitzgerald, Karol; Boyle, Richard P.; Golden, Aaron; Butler, Ray F.

The Galway Ultra-Fast Imager (GUFI) located on the 1.8m Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) was tasked to monitor tight brown dwarf binaries. However, due to the close separation between the components in these binaries, the GUFI photometer could not image each component of binary systems as a point source in our campaign. Therefore, we developed and employed our novel application, the ‘Light Curve Fitter’, which is capable of distinguishing two superimposed sinusoidal waves. This application allows users to untangle the secondary component's variability signature from that of the dominant primary variability.
