S-lang/ISIS Timing Analysis Routines (SITAR) Distribution and References
SITAR is open-source software, freely distributable and modifiable by
the users. Subroutines herein have greatly benefitted from the
generosity and insight of others, e.g., Jeffrey Scargle for the Bayesian
Blocks routines, and the IDL
routines found on the web pages of the
IAA-Tübingen Astronomy group.
If you make custom modifications to these subroutines, please:
- Retain copies of the relevant version history in the subroutine
- Detail changes made to the code, with date and contact
information, in the headers.
- Please don't delete journal and reference information from the
headers. If you get something useful out of the subroutines, by
all means reference those invented the
algorithms (not me!), as well as ISIS. (The
routines rely on a number of ISIS intrinsic functions.)
- The proper references to use for citing ISIS can be found on this
ISIS Web Page.
Most importantly ...
- If you make any changes that you think will be generically
useful to others, please send me the relevant changes to the code for
consideration in any updates of this distribution.
