Abstract:
The EXTraS project (Exploring the X-ray Transient and variable Sky ) is harvesting the hitherto unexplored temporal domain information buried in the serendipitous data collected by the European Photon Imaging Camera (EPIC) instrument on board the ESA XMM-Newton, in 13 years of observations. The main result will be a public catalogue that will become the reference for time domain astrophysics in the soft X-ray band, until a future, dedicated mission is deployed. The project plans to perform part of this analysis by exploiting Cloud resources through a dedicated science gateway. This will allow extending the analysis to recent EPIC data, not included in the public catalogue that will be released at the end of 2016, and will also allow users from the community to analyse their own data using EXTraS pipelines. Moreover, population studies of transient and variable sources can be performed only when the systematic analysis of the full data sample and its screening and validation is concluded, i.e. after the end of the EXTraS project.
