## 2. Basis of the correction procedureWe make no phase shift between the curves but take the effect of the phase shift into account in a correction curve as a function of phase to be determined. It is the determination of the phase variation of these template correction curves that calibrates the method and is the subject of this note. We postulate, later to be tested using actual data, that we can
transfer the information on shape, amplitude, and variable phase shift
over the cycle from the complete and The reason for the postulate is that we expect the individual
differences (at any phase) between the observed magnitude and the mean
magnitude (intensity mean converted to magnitude units) in wavelength
j, relative to the same difference in the Once the correction functions all data read at the Note again that each separate value gives an
