Abstract

Since launch on March 6th, 2009, NASA s Kepler Space Telescope has collected 48 months of data on over 195,000 targets. The raw data are rife with instrumental and astrophysical noise that must be removed in order to detect and model the transit-like signals present in the data. Calibrating the raw pixels, generating and correcting the flux light curves, and detecting and characterizing the signals require significant computational power. In addition, the algorithms that make up the Kepler Science Pipeline and their ...
