Abstract: The Lomb-Scargle periodogram was introduced in astrophysics to detect sinusoidal signals in noisy unevenly sampled time series. It proved to be a powerful tool in time series analysis and has recently been adapted in biomedical sciences. Its use is motivated by handling non-uniform data which is a common characteristic due to the restricted and irregular observations of, for instance, free-living animals. However, the observational data often contain fractions of non-Gaussian noise or may consist of periodic s…
