Syllabus: Objectives, Contents, Main progression steps and evaluation

We will use Discord (not the same group chat as the one for the maths lecture).

Lectures:

- Slides : Introduction to detection theory with application examples in Astrophysics
- Lecture notes with numerical exercises : Introduction to detection theory and applications to exoplanet detection in time series
- Calculations notes 1 , notes 2 (with some corrections !)

Homeworks:

- Homework 0 (D. Mary) : Transit detection [Archive with the data] [Solution]
- Homework 1 (S. Sulis, May 6, 13:00-15:00) : Statistical study of exoplanets parameters 1/2 [Solution]
- Homework 2 (S. Sulis, May 10, 13:00-15:00) : Statistical study of exoplanets parameters 2/2 [Solution]
- Homework 3 (S. Sulis, May 17, 13:00-15:00) : Keplerian signatures in RV [Data] [Python code] [Solution]
- Homework 4 (S. Sulis, May 25, 10:00-12:00) : The periodogram [Solution]
- Homework 5 (S. Sulis, June 3, 10:00-12:00) : Transit detection with the BLS

Solutions to some numerical exercises of the exercises of the lecture notes (Octave/Matlab codes)

- Exercises 1 to 6
