1XMM catalogue detailed release note

The catalogue was originally made using SAS manifest xmmsas_20020522_1701 and PPS version was 05000034/20020625.161738. However, after the catalogue pipeline processing was completed, the source detection and subsequent stages were repeated (i.e., pipeline modules: ExpDetect, SrcMerge, SendACDS, ReceiveACDS, StampKeywords, Finalize). In this re-run, only one SAS task was changed (emldetect-4.21 was used instead of 4.11.13), and only one pipeline module was changed (ExpDetect-1.28.13 was used instead of 1.28.12). This re-run pipeline was version 05000035/20020903.113118.

The previous pipeline in use for routine products production was 04000010/20020508.121539, this used SAS 5.3.2, and is the baseline for this release note. Full release note for this and earlier pipelines are available at http://xmmssc-www.star.le.ac.uk/pipeview/prod

# Tasks

# eboxdetect 4.7.2 4.7.1
Version 4.7.2 - 2002-05-16 HB
Closed SPRs:
+ SSC-SPR-2836 wrong source counts formula in documentation
+ SSC-SPR-2862 (on eposcorr) inconsistent lii/bii,lii_corr/bii_corr values: constant 'pi' set to double precision (also fixed in emldetect)

# eexpmap 3.23.3 3.23.2
Version 3.23.3 (2002-05-22) HB
To avoid excessive memory usage the task automatically switches from fast to slow pixelization mode in the rare cases where a large number of attitude historgram bins is required due to an unstable attitude. In task version 4.21 an error was introduced which resulted in exposure maps offset by about 1.5 arcmin in these cases. Corrected in version 3.23.3

# emevents 6.5.4 6.5.3
Version 6.5.4 - 2002-05-14 (JB)
Remove reference to lccorr in doc (emevents_description.tex).

# emldetect 4.21 4.11.10
Version 4.21 - 2002-08-09 GL
Fudge likelihood function in order to avoid fits running away to very negative count rates.
Version 4.20 - 2002-08-06 GL
Remove countrate >= 0 limitation.
Version 4.19 - 2002-07-31 GL
Fixed distribution
Version 4.18 - 2002-07-31 GL
Fixed distribution
Version 4.17 - 2002-07-31 GL
Limit count rates to >= 0 (as in versions to 4.14). If lower confidence limit of count rate is negative, use upper 1 sigma confidence limit as count rate error. This modification ensures proper error estimates for small count rates.
Version 4.16 - 2002-07-18 GL
Modified likelihood computation in order to deal with negative source counts.
Version 4.15 - 2002-07-11 GL
Allow negative count rates in PSF fitting. (fixes problem of large errors of small or zero count rates)
Version 4.14 - 2002-05-31 HB
Task now issues an error if WCS keywords of input files do not agree
Version 4.13 - 2002-05-24 GL
Based on v4.11.13
Changed dimensions of array SIMA to 0:250, prevents crashing for image binsize < 2 arcsec
Adjust emldetect.par to param v2
Version 4.11.13 - 2002-05-22 GL
Removed test output
Version 4.11.12 - 2002-05-22 HB
Closed SPR: SSC-SPR-2869 Several sources are not found at the right place
Error occured in versions from 4.11.8 (Initialize XID band countrates to their proper values, changed initialisation of unknown countrates to 100./exposure)
Version 4.11.11 - 2002-05-16 HB
Closed SPR:SSC-SPR-2862 (on eposcorr) inconsistent lii/bii, lii_corr/bii_corr corrrected by changing constant 'pi' to double precision
