Analysis software: ASTERIX

 

ASTERIX is the STARLINK-maintained X-ray data analysis and image processing package and is the software most commonly used by UK astronomers to analyse their ROSAT data. The software contains a number of instrument-specific packages which pre-process datasets into products, such as images, spectra and time series, which can then be manipulated with the general data analysis routines.

The XRT interface to ASTERIX is described in detail in the Starlink User Notes (SUN) #98. The latest version of this manual can be obtained from the Starlink Website at:
http://star-www.rl.ac.uk/docscode.html.
Alternatively, users can refer to the on-line help pages which can be viewed by typing ASTHELP.
