EXOFAST

(code to match model parameters with exoplanet observation data)

EXOFAST is a code that fits model parameters that describe the extra-solar planet and host star to transit-method and RV-method observation data. It uses analytical methods for some cases, and when none are suitable, uses Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) to identify the most likely parameters.
