User Manuals for analysing INTEGRAL data

last update of the manual pages: 28.6.2006

INTEGRAL's scientific (offline) analysis starts with data produced by the science window pipeline (prepared data; ISDC level PRP). For the different data sets, slightly different analysis has to be performed. In the list below you find links to the different User Manuals available for the offline analysis. The main focus of this page is on the SPI analysis.
