Lomb-Scargle periodogram

Alternative definitions (0), class: vernacular (0)
Term: Lomb-Scargle periodogram

An algorithm for detecting and characterizing periodic signals in unevenly-sampled data. The Lomb-Scargle periodogram has a particularly wide use within the astronomy community. This method allows efficient computation of a Fourier-like power spectrum estimator from such unevenly-sampled data, resulting in an intuitive means of determining the period of oscillation.
