Summer 2020 Research Journal

1 June 2020:

10:30 - 11:00 Orientation meeting with Reshmi

  • Primary contacts: Ari, Qi, Reshmi

  • FermiPy analysis of BLacs - SEDs and light curves

    • Potentially publish light curves

  • Schedule weekly meetings with Ari & Qi added to the 2 group meetings.

    • Group: Mon & Wed @ 2

    • Ari: Thurs @ 2

11:00 - 2:00

  • Reading and annotating article: “On the distribution of fluxes of gamma-ray blazars: hints for a stochastic process” - in OneNote drive

  • Logging back into Slack, Nevis Twiki, tehanu (on MobaXterm)

    • Still need access to the VERITAS site

2:00 - 3:00 Group Meeting Notes:

  • FermiPy Tutorial moved to 4pm

  • Potential summer colloquium for physics & astro researchers at Barnard & Columbia

  • Summer Research Journal

    • On Nevis Twiki

    • Track progress and analysis for undergrads

  • VERITAS site is up!

    • Need to write a short bio for the ‘People’ section

4:00 - 5:00 FermiPy tutorial - Ari

  • Notes taken in my notebook

  • The session is recorded for future reference


2 June 2020

12:45 Meeting with Reshmi and Ari

3 June 2020

  • Reviewing Unix/Linux tutorials > continuing working on familiarizing within tehanu

  • Following FermiPy configuration steps

    • Question: how do you determine the start/stop time of the analysis?

      • Asked Ari > we will ask in group meeting

      • I assume there is a time range picked for the GeV -TeV project

  • Writing short bullet points for my research interests. I sent them to Kayla for the website.

  • Using 4FGLto match the source names with the 4FGL names

    • I need either the name or the coordinates for the config file.

    • Question: If I cannot find the 4FGL name (from TeVCat), does that mean that it is not in the catalog?


4 June 2020

9am meeting with Reshmi and Elisa

  • Default (monthly) bins on light curves. Then do 3 day bins.

  • Date range: Fermi mission start date April 2020

  • April 2020 - stochastic processes paper: plots of dN/df are interesting analyses on six of the strongest quasars. Try to run these plots for these fermi sources. Run their analysis, apply modeling.

    • Try to extend the plots to include both fermi and veritas flux.

    • Integrated flux, independent of time. Flux in bins. Counts per bin. One step further > dn/df plots

  • Next week’s goal: ramp up on fermi analysis. Fermilight curve one first source: flux distribution, dn/df plot. Geibles 2004 paper.

  • Flux vs time plot: how to convert into a fits file > Terek could know.

  • Make slides for paper: data used, analysis used, conclusions made.

Start time: 234316801.000 (MET) = 2008Jun05

End Time: 607392005.000 (MET) = 2020Apr01

Configuring analysis:

The original prefix is "3C279" which is for the quasar. So if I am doing analysis on 1ES 2344+514 the prefix should be "1ES2344"
