Astraea is a package to train Random Forest (RF) models on datasets. It provides tools to train RF classifiers and regressors as well as perform simple cross-validation tests and create performance plots for the test set.

It was first developed to calculate rotation period of stars from various stellar properties provided and is intended to predict long rotation periods (e.g. those of M-dwarfs) from short TESS lightcurves (27-day lightcurves).

We provide access to models trained on stars from the catalog by McQuillan et al. (2014), Garcia et al. (2014), and Santos et al. (2019). Users can predict whether rotation period can be recovered and predict recoverable rotation periods for the stars in the Kepler field by using their temperatures, colors, kinematics, and other stellar parameters.
