PLAsTiCC Astro Starter Kit

Copyright 2018 - The PLAsTiCC Team

About

This is an astronomy "starter kit" for the Photometric LSST Astronomical Time-series Classification Challenge (PLAsTiCC) being hosted on Kaggle. It's intended to provide a gentle introduction to some of the astrophysical jargon and domain knowledge needed to understand the data provided in the challenge.

The starter kit consists of two Project Jupyter notebooks

  • plasticc_astro_starter_kit.ipynb : the astrophysics introduction - can be viewed as a slideshow
  • plasticc_classification_demo.ipynb : an example of building a classifier for the data

Other files:

  • data/ : Example data included with the notebooks
  • media/ : Images and videos included with the notebooks
  • README.rst : This file
  • conda_env_py36_osx64.yml : a YAML specification to install a compatible environment with conda on OSX
  • conda_env_py36_i686.yml : a YAML specification to install a compatible environment with conda on Linux (tested on Ubuntu 16.04)
  • requirements.txt : file with package specifications for pip

If you have questions about the data or the material in the notebook, find us on the Kaggle forums

Good luck!
