About

Description

This is a monitor using data from Swift/BAT and MAXI instruments.
Click on the table header to change the sorting behaviour.
Color code for the probability: (rising flux , no change, decreasing flux)
The average flux is calculated as the average of the last 3 days of data, without taking the errors into account.
Please note that the accuracy of the probabilities is limited by the accuracy of the data used.

Analysis method description

The analysis is an algorithm computing a flux change parameter by calculating a "relative distance" of two measurements and weighting it according to the instrument used and the given error.
