Faraday Tomography tutorial

The aim of the Faraday tomography tutorial is that the participants become able to understand the basic behaviors of the Faraday tomography technique and to apply the technique to the real data by their own hands. The tutorial consists of the lecture of basics of the technique and the practice using Python (plus Fortran90) codes that we provide. Participants are requested to bring their own laptop PC and to install “Python 2.7 version of Anaconda” and gfortaran onto it by the beginning of the tutorial session.
Files can be downloaded from here .

CASA/AIPS tutorial

The aim of the CASA/AIPS tutorial session is to introduce young beginners to the reduction of radio polarization data. The session begins with a short introduction that includes the basic concepts of polarization observations and data reduction with AIPS, followed by the CASA tutorial, which has three stages:
(i) An overview of CASA and its capabilities.
(ii) Work through a tutorial to become familiar with the manual use of running tasks in CASA.
(iii) Work through the running of a basic automated Python script in CASA, on a small polarised dataset from the VLA archive.
Participants are requested to bring their own laptop PC and to install CASA onto it by the beginning of the tutorial session.
