lcplot (lcplot-1.22.1) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Comments

- lcplot only produces plots of light curves measured by EPIC or OM. We note that no RGS Source Time Series FITS file is specified in [1].
- Error rates are rebinned following a quadratic scheme (Central limit theorem).
- Time intervals all have the same length, the first one is TSTART , TSTART + Binsize*TIMEDEL where TIMEDEL is the bin width read from the file [1].
- We note in [1] that the keyword TIMEDEL is specified in MJD. We have assumed it to be given in seconds.
- Time on the X-axis is given as T-TSTART in seconds.
- The mean, variance, Chi Square, etc are provided with six significant digits.
- A Chi Square statistic close to the bin number and a small Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic with probabilities higher than 0.01 indicate that the source is not variable.
- The output devices are those of the PGPLOT library. The device list is governed by the drivers available to PGPLOT.
