KICP Education & Outreach Summer School for Graduate Students, June 16-27, Chicago, IL

Applications due: May 13, 2014

We are very pleased to announce a hands-on summer school for graduate students interested in education and outreach (E&O). This school will feature a week of practicum that will immerse participants in E&O; for example, presenting at the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, developing hands-on classroom activities, creating content with WorldWide Telescope, or developing Zooniverse/citizen science program activities. The school will also include a one-day science communications workshop presented by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, field trips to Chicago area institutions, and a concise introduction to E&O basics.

                   - Limited to 14 participants

When writing last week's 'simulating and fitting 2D data in Sherpa' IPython notebook, I realised that I can try out the object API of the pyBLoCXS module (Bayesian Low Count X-ray Spectral), and so compare the error estimates from the "standard" X-ray Astronomy techniques (covariance and confidence) with that from a Monte Carlo Markov Chain (MCMC) analysis. So I threw this notebook together today (mainly to show how to do it, rather than discussing why or interpreting the results).

As a reminder, the other notebooks in the series, of using Sherpa for modelling and fitting data in Python - can be found at  https://github.com/DougBurke/sherpa-standalone-notebooks

Continuing my IPython notebook blitz, explaining parts of Sherpa, our Python fitting and modelling package which is on GitHub (https://github.com/sherpa/sherpa/). This on e shows how you can simulate and fit a 2D (i.e. image) data set using the object API, and do some error analysis on the parameters. It probably best makes sense when read as part of the series, which can be found at https://github.com/DougBurke/sherpa-standalone-notebooks

Another IPython notebook showin off some of the features in Sherpa, our Python fitting and modelling package. This time I talk about how to build it so that you can use the models from XSPEC and, thanks to a discussion with a colleague, how you can write a model that extends (or changes) the behavior of an existing model (rather than having to rewrite it from scratch).

To round the week off, here's a notebook (building off of yesterday's one, which is linked to at the start of this one, for those who need some context) showing how to create plots with Sherpa when using the low-level API for fitting and modelling. It also shows that you can still use matplotlib commands with these "pre-canned" plots.

Another "Yay" for IPython notebooks.

A colleague - on reading my recent post on how to add a user model to our Python-based modelling and fitting environment (Sherpa) - asked why I was bothering with the CDF rather than use the PDF. This is a good example of expanding the example, since it covers writing an "integrated" model and how to write a "guess" function.

It also meant I could avoid writing the documentation I'm supposed to be writing, by writing other documentation!

Finally got around to writing up a simple example of adding your own model to Sherpa. In this case I wanted to fit a cumulative distribution with a Gamma CDF. It also shows an example of using the under-documented "direct access" API.

This works with the version we distribute as part of CIAO as well as the version on GitHub https://github.com/sherpa/sherpa/.

I've had some spare time on my hands recently, thanks to the snow we've been getting in the Boston area. So, I decided to use it to continue my exploration of communicating with notebooks (in the IPython sense of notebook).

Here's a link to an IHaskell notebook (so the IPython notebook machinery but using Haskell instead) which shows some simple Astronomical calculations (in this case, Cosmological ones, such as the angular-diameter and luminosity distances), and trying out one of the "units" packages for including units in a calculation. Comments can be made on the GitHub page https://github.com/DougBurke/astro-haskell/issues  (or here ;-)

The next Seamless Astronomy colloquium is on Monday (October 27th), at 12pm EDT, and will be live-streamed on YouTube (see the web page for the details).

Come along and hear Professor Christine Borgman of UCLA tell us about how Astronomy is a leader in "knowledge infrastructure", how the CfA plays its part with facilities like the NASA ADS http://adswww.harvard.edu/ (for literature) and the Chandra X-ray Center http://chandra.harvard.edu/ (for data), and how much effort is required (including people having to spend a lot of their time on standards committees ;-) to get this to work.

In fifteen years of operation, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has given us a view of the universe that is largely hidden from telescopes sensitive only to visible light. For example, Chandra has captured galaxy clusters - the largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe - in the process of forming, and provided the best evidence yet that the cosmos is dominated by a mysterious substance called dark matter.

Join us on Tuesday, July 22, at 3 p.m. EDT for a celebration of the 15th anniversary of Chandra. Four accomplished scientists, Steve O’Dell, Harvey Tananbaum, Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo and Scott Wolk will discuss scientific highlights of the mission and show examples of beautiful Chandra images.

Major Dataverse Release Coming Soon (Goodbye 3.6.x; Hello 4.0!)

Dataverses will now be able to contain other dataverses, allowing for an arbitrary depth of organizing your dataverses into a tree-like hierarchy.
