The rvmethod package is designed to implement the Radial Velocity (RV) method for detecting exoplanets through the periodic motion of their host star. Particularly, this uses the methodology from Holzer et. al (2020) that introduces the Hermite-Gaussian Radial Velocity (HGRV) approach that simplifies the process to simple linear regression.

The process of implementing this method through this package is the following sequence of steps:

To install the package, run the following command in R: install.packages(“rvmethod”)

Along with the functions mentioned in the sequence above, there are some example data sets that are used in examples given in the documentation.
