These light curves are made available to the public as part of the publication of our recent paper, "Statistical Searches for Microlensing Events in Large, Non-Uniformly Sampled Time-Domain Surveys: A Test Using Palomar Transient Factory Data." We have selected ~10,000 light curves from the Palomar Transient Factory database that can be used to test the various statistical tools described in the paper.
