LAL  7.0.0.1-bad49cb
General Purpose Tools

Detailed Description

This package contains the general purpose LAL tools.

Modules

 Header Calibration.h
 Calibration API.
 
 Header DetResponse.h
 Provides routines to compute gravitational wave detector response to polarized planar gravitational wave originating from a given source, detected at a given time.
 
 Frequency Series Manipulation
 This is a suite of functions for creating, destroying, and manipulating LAL frequency series. One pair of functions (the XLAL version and its LAL counterpart) is available for each method and frequency series type. For example XLALCreateREAL4FrequencySeries() is available for creating frequency series of REAL4 data, and the LAL-stype wrapper LALCreateREAL4FrequencySeries() is provided which is equivalent to the XLAL version in all respects except that it adheres to the LAL calling conventions (eg. it takes a LALStatus pointer as its first argument, its return type is void, etc.).
 
 Header LALDetectors.h
 This header defines structures to hold the basic data describing a gravitational wave detector.
 
 Header ResampleTimeSeries.h
 Provides routines to resample a time series.
 
 Header Segments.h
 Provides data types and functions for manipulating lists of ``segments'' (GPS time intervals).
 
 Sequence Manipulation
 This is a suite of functions for creating, destroying, and manipulating LAL sequences. For example XLALCreateREAL4Sequence() is available for creating sequences of REAL4 data.
 
 Time Series Manipulation
 This is a suite of functions for creating, destroying, and manipulating LAL time series. One pair of functions (the XLAL version and its LAL counterpart) is available for each method and series type. For example XLALCreateREAL4TimeSeries() is available for creating time series of REAL4 data, and the LAL-stype wrapper LALCreateREAL4TimeSeries() is provided which is equivalent to the XLAL version in all respects except that it adheres to the LAL calling conventions (eg. it takes a LALStatus pointer as its first argument, its return type is void, etc.).
 
 Trigger Interpolation
 This module implements several algorithms for performing sub-sample interpolation of peaks in the output of a matched filter.
 
 Header Units.h
 Provides prototypes for manipulation of units and declares extern constants for the basic and derived SI units.
