Tutorials

Each tutorial will lead you step-by-step through some common data analysis tasks. While LIGO data can be analyzed using libraries in many software languages (C, C++, Matlab, etc.), most of these tutorials use Python. See also the software page for more examples.
See the tutorial setup page for help installing software to run these tutorials.
Tutorials shown here are not used to produce published results. For gravitational-wave software analysis packages that are used to produce LSC and Virgo Collaboration publications, see https://losc.ligo.org/software/.
