Additional Data Sets

The timing analysis tools you have used with RXTE data from the source GX301-2 can also be used to analyse data from other periodic sources. Included with the Student Hera module are data sets from the sources Vela X-1 and Cen X-3. You can use the steps taken in your exploration of GX301-2 as a template to explore their lightcurves and find any periodicities.
