Library and Tools Technical Reference

The purpose of this document is to provide a technical reference for the LSF/RMF reference data and software for analysis of the transmission grating data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO) and a summary of the LSF/RMF tools for the gratings and the RMF derived from the LSF reference data as they currently exist. The target audience is assumed to have experience with X-ray data analysis methods, the scientific ramifications of the analysis methods, and software.
