1.3 SAS Analysis Threads

SAS Analysis Threads are simple examples intended to help users, in particular beginners, to reduce and analyse XMM-Newton data. They cover from the basic system set-up to the most complex analysis topics.

SAS Analysis Threads are revised to reflect the latest changes in the current SAS release, and new threads are added as new functionality or tools become available in SAS.

Some of the analysis procedures described in this guide are also applied and explained in the SAS Analysis Threads [30] web pages.
