This part of the documentation covers a suite of examples intended to demonstrate the various applications of PyFstat in searching for continuous gravitational waves (CWs), using different grid- and MCMC-based methods, as well as some of the additional helper utilities included in the package.
The complete set of examples can be accessed by cloning or downloading the PyFstat repository from github or Zenodo (make sure to target the proper PyFstat version). After that, run_all_examples.py, included in the package, can be executed to run all examples one by one. This can be useful to have a general view of all the tools provided by PyFstat.
Alternatively, they can be run interactively through Binder:
Note though that the examples have currently not yet been optimized the interactive notebook experience, meaning for example that you’ll need to use the jupyter file browser to find the plots which are saved to files instead of being directly displayed.
