About the HEACIT category

Forum for discussion about high energy astrophysics codes, interfaces, and tools - supported by the HEACIT working group.

This forum is meant to provide a public and searchable interface for discussing software techniques related to the data reduction and analysis of high energy astronomical observations. There are several ways to engage with this forum:

  • Ask questions and give help regarding common high energy software libraries (e.g., Heasoft) or data analysis tools (XSPEC, Sherpa, SPEX, and more)

  • Discuss the current landscape of high energy software and databases. Developers can publicly discuss use cases that they are working on or would like to see handled.

  • Discuss open science practices, data handling, and analysis techniques for high energy astronomy
