Stingray: Time series methods for astronomical X-ray data that aren't fishy at all!

Stevens, Abigail; Huppenkothen, Daniela

In much of the small X-ray timing community, the data analysis software is old, private, poorly maintained, and poorly documented, and we believe this will hinder the further development of the sub-field. With the advent of new timing missions like ASTROSAT and NICER, we want the community to have software that has a low entrance threshold and relatively small learning curve. We are in the early stages of developing Stingray, a general-purpose python package for timing and spectral-timing analysis of astronomical X-ray data, with the intent to expand to fast timing data in other wavelengths in the future. GitHub pull requests and issues are welcome! http://stingraysoftware.github.io/
