DISC-QUASAR CODE DISTRIBUTION: Identifying Distant Quasars in Sky Surveys

Contact: Eugene Fink, Julio López, Garth Gibson

Data-mining tools for identifying quasars in sky-survey datasets based on their brightness in the five standard passbands, that is, in the images made through five different color filters.

The DISC-Quasar package is a set of tools for distinguishing quasars from other astronomical objects, such as stars and galaxies. Its main focus is identifying distant quasars, with redshift greater than 2.3, which means that they are over twelve billion light years away. The package includes supervised learning algorithms that construct rules for quasar detection based on labeled samples.
