During next week we will have the lectures and workshops of VIRGO.UA invited lecturer
Dr. Marcus Kirsch
(XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre, Spain).
The aim of these lectures and workshops is to train people with XMM-Newton SAS software, give them the basics of data reduction, including analysis in pn timing/burst modes.
All these lectures and workshops will take place at VIRGO.UA room (Physical Faculty, r.423)
Tuesday, 24 April.
