PyTransit: Fast and Easy Exoplanet Transit Modelling in Python. We present a fast and user friendly exoplanet transit light curve modelling package PyTransit, implementing optimised versions of the Gimenéz and the Mandel & Agol transit models. The package offers an object-oriented Python interface to access the two models implemented natively in Fortran with OpenMP parallelisation. A partial OpenCL version of the quadratic Mandel-Agol model is also included for GPU-accelerated computations. The aim of PyTransit is to facilitate the analysis of photometric time series of exoplanet transits consisting of hundreds of thousands of datapoints, and of multi-passband transit light curves from spectrophotometric observations, as a part of a researcher’s programming toolkit for building complex, problem-specific, analyses.
