Calculating Time of Minimum: Kwee–van Woerden Algorithm
Mira Pro x64 and Mira Pro Ultimate Edition include an implementation of the Kwee ‒ van Woerden Algorithm for calculating the time of minimum from a set of unequally spaced data. This is a professional research tool used for study of variable stars, minor planets, etc. The calculation of the 1-sigma uncertainty in time of minimum is one feature of the Kwee ‒ van Woerden algorithm that distinguishes it from standard numerical minimum-finding techniques. Mira supports data import by manual entry or pasting in multi-column data. Supported format include TXT, CSV, and plain text with user-specified column separators.
