Log(Likelihood)¶

orbitize.lnlike.
chi2_lnlike
(data, errors, model, seppa_indices)[source]¶ Compute Log of the chi2 Likelihood
 Parameters
data (np.array) – Nobsx2 array of data, where data[:,0] = sep/RA/RV for every epoch, and data[:,1] = corresponding pa/DEC/np.nan
errors (np.array) – Nobsx2 array of errors for each data point. Same format as
data
model (np.array) – Nobsx2xM array of model predictions, where M is the number of orbits being compared against the data. If M is 1,
model
can be 2 dimensional.seppa_indices (list) – list of epoch numbers whose observations are given in sep/PA. This list is located in System.seppa.
 Returns
Nobsx2xM array of chisquared values.
 Return type
np.array
Note
Example: We have 8 epochs of data for a system. OFTI returns an array of 10,000 sets of orbital parameters. The
model
input for this function should be an array of dimension 8 x 2 x 10,000.
