Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this lecture, we will conduct a complete scientific project from the development of its working flow to the final submitted paper.
The topic will be the Blue Stragglers in open clusters. These intriguing stars are too young compared to their host clusters. The starting point will be a newly published catalog of these objects based on Gaia data. We will download and reduce the TESS time series to search for variable and non-variable stars. This is especially demanding because of the crowded fields. The basic time series analysis algorithms and their automatic application will be also presented. Most important will be the team work and meeting deadlines. Qualities which are needed for any future scientific work.
