  • Introduction

    (1).SGR 1627-41

    (2).epoch folding,H-test

  • Data Reduction and Analysis

  • Future work


Introduction

introduction

  • 1. The first SGR was observed on March 5, 1979.

  • 2. It was discovered some bursts repeated at the same position in 1986.

  • 3. Properties of SGRs

    (1)they repeat

    (2)soft spectra

    (3)short duration

SGR 1627-41

  • First observation:

    Ulysses (1998–07-17)

  • RA, DEC SINBAD 16h35m52.00s,-47o35’14.0”J2000

    BappoSAX 16h35m49.8s,-47o35’44”J2000

    ASCA 16h35m46.41s,-47o35’13.1”J2000

  • associate with nearby SNR : SNR G337.0-0.1

phases

Phases:

The probability density of phases:


Timing analysis of sgr 1627 41

Epoch folding

If Nj is large, S is approximately distributed as xn-12 for a flat probability density.


Timing analysis of sgr 1627 41

Rayleigh test

If the phase probability density is flat, the displacements are a two-dimensional random walk.


Timing analysis of sgr 1627 41

The means of c and s depend on the Fourier transform sine and cosine amplitudes of f(q).

The Rayleigh power is P=R2/N

==>

The random variabl 2P is therefore approximately distributed as x22.

Zm2 -test and H-test

A generalization of the Rayleigh test:

Include the effect of a zealous obser in the caculation of significance:


Compare fft with epoch folding

Compare FFT with Epoch Folding

  • Epoch folding is more sensitive to the nonsinusoidal pulse shapes characteristics of X-ray pulsars.

  • Epoch folding provides a straightforward approach to handling gaps which routinely appear in data.

  • Epoch folding is extremely time-consuming on the computer.


Compare h test with epoch folding

Compare H-test with Epoch Folding

  • Epoch folding is more sensitive to the nonsinusoidal pulse shapes characteristics of X-ray pulsars.

  • The H-test is free of the binning uncertainties associated with epoch folding.

Data reduction

Data reduction

  • Use standard screened event file

  • Filtering

    Filter region

    Filter energy: 1-10kev (21-213)

  • Barycentric correction


Timing analysis of sgr 1627 41

  • Elevation Angle (ELV) >5

  • Stable Pointing Directions (ACS, ANG_DIST): ACS==0 && ANG_DIST 0 && ANG_DIST <0.01

  • South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) ==0

  • Cut-off Rigidity (COR)>4 (GeV/c)

  • (G2_H0+G2_H2+G3_H0+G3_H2)<45 && (G2_H0+G2_H2+G3_H0+G3_H2)<0.45*COR**2-13*COR+125 && RBM_CONT <100

  • The recommended region filter radius for bright sources in the GIS is 6 arcmin (24 pixels).

  • For weak sources smaller regions could be used to reduce the background.
