The LWA low frequency data reduction tutorial provides an overview of how to observe with LWA1 and provides a variety of science cases that can be investigated with the data. These include:
The tutorial can be found in PDF form here and builds off the LWA Software Library and its extensions. The data for the various portions of the tutorial can be found at these locations:
Note: Many of these data files are 10s to 100s of GB in size but the entire file may not need to be downloaded to complete the tutorial.
- observing pulsars in order to determine the period and dispersion measure,
- searching for transient events in beam formed (DRX) data, and
