DMTN-118 is a new technote that discusses Rubin’s plans for the timeseries features it will compute on alert and Data Release lightcurves. Timeseries features touch a wide variety of scientific and technical issues, so we want to ensure that we hear from the science community before we make any final decisions.
The current draft of DMTN-118 provides a literature review and discusses some open questions. We are maintaining a working draft feature list at https://ls.st/fkr. Feedback on both documents is welcome.
We plan to present this material in a variety of community forums (SCMA VII, the PST/Science Collaboration Chairs talk series, at the Project and Community Workshop), so there will be many opportunities to comment. However, we also welcome asynchronous discussion of the document here on Community, either in reply to this post or as new topics.
