PROJECT: appaloosa

Finding every flare in every Kepler light curve.


appaloosa is being depricated for now, and we do not reccomend using it for searching for flares. Instead, look to the new project: AltaiPony


If you use this code, or the data table of flare stars, please cite the paper Davenport (2016, ApJ). This work is supported by a NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship under award AST-1501418.

Q: Why "appaloosa"?
A: I ran out of better ideas for names

How to appaloosa:

  1. Download and have all Kepler data ready on cluster
  2. Run to prep Condor scheduling scripts
  3. Run Condor scripts on cluster
  4. Bundle outputs (aprun directory) in to .tar.gz file, move to workstation, unpackage
  5. Generate a list of .fake output files, run
  6. gzip the output table
  7. Do analysis and create plots for paper by running, specifically paper1_plots()
