Advanced Analysis Methods¶
This page documents some of the more advanced methods and features available in Fermipy:
- TS Map: Generate a test statistic (TS) map for a new source centered at each spatial bin in the ROI.
- TS Cube: Generate a TS map using the
gttscubeST application. In addition to generating a TS map this method can also extract a test source likelihood profile as a function of energy and position over the whole ROI.
- Residual Map: Generate a residual map by evaluating the difference between smoothed data and model maps (residual) at each spatial bin in the ROI.
- Source Finding: Find new sources using an iterative source-finding algorithim. Adds new sources to the ROI by looking for peaks in the TS map.
- SED Analysis: Compute the spectral energy distribution of a source by fitting its amplitude in a sequence of energy bins.
- Light Curves: Compute the lightcurve of a source by fitting its amplitude in a sequence of time bins.
- Extension Fitting: Fit the angular extension of a source.
- Source Localization: Find the best-fit position of a source.
- Phased Analysis: Instructions for performing a phased-selected analysis.
- Sensitivity Tools: Scripts and classes for estimating sensitivity.
