Welcome to the documentation for (Py)minbar!

This package provides tools and software for accessing, analysing and plotting data from the Multi-INstrument Burst ARchive (MINBAR) that includes thermonuclear (X-ray) bursts observed by RXTE/PCA, BeppoSAX/WFC and INTEGRAL/JEM-X; see Galloway et al. 2020 (ApJS 349, 32) or the preprint at arXiv:2003.00685

The required MINBAR ASCII data tables are available via the online data table repository at https://doi.org/10.26180/5e4a697d9b8b6

The code is written in Python 3, except for some legacy code related to the burst lightcurve fitting (see folder burst_fit), in FORTRAN
