LEGWORK (LISA Evolution and Gravitational Wave ORbit Kit) is a python package designed to calculate signal-to-noise ratios for GWs emitted from inspiraling binary systems that are potentially observable by LISA.

LEGWORK also contains a plotting module so you can show off those detectable GW sources of yours and treats any and all kinds of stellar-origin inspiralling binaries. Circular and stationary? No problem! Eccentric and chirping? We’ve got you covered!

Want to determine if your favorite source is detectable by LISA? Let LEGWORK do the legwork and keep the LISA literature free from spurious factors of 2!
