RobPer: Robust periodogram methods for irregularly sampled time series and robust periodicity detection methods

Package to calculate periodograms based on (robustly) fitting periodic functions to light curves (irregularly observed time series, possibly with measurement accuracies, occurring in astroparticle physics). Three main functions are included: RobPer calculates the periodogram. Outlying periodogram bars (indicating a period) can be detected with betaCvMfit. Artificial light curves can be generated using the function tsgen. For more details see Thieler, Fried and Rathjens (2013).
