Control Software for the SST-1M Small-Size Telescope prototype for the Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.04244]
 GO
The SST-1M is a 4-m Davies--Cotton atmospheric Cherenkov telescope optimized to provide gamma-ray sensitivity above a few TeV. The SST-1M is proposed as part of the Small-Size Telescope array for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the first prototype has already been deployed. [...]

End-to-end data acquisition pipeline for the Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.04203]
 GO
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will operate several types of telescopes and cameras. The individual camera trigger rates will vary much - from 0.6 to 15 kHz - while the content of the raw data will be heterogeneous. [...]

Gammapy: high level data analysis for extragalactic science cases with the Cherenkov Telescope Arrayonsortium
[arXiv:1709.10169]
 GO
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) observatory will probe the non-thermal universe above 20 GeV up to several hundreds of TeV with a significant improvement in sensitivity and angular resolution compared to current experiments. Its outstanding capabilities will allow to increase the number of extragalactic cosmic accelerators detected at very high energy (VHE) and therefore to better constrain the population of VHE accelerators and the gamma-ray absorption processes in the intergalactic medium. [...]

Exploring deep learning as an event classification method for the Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.05889]
 GO
Telescopes based on the imaging atmospheric Cherenkov technique (IACTs) detect images of the atmospheric showers generated by gamma rays and cosmic rays as they are absorbed by the atmosphere. The much more frequent cosmic-ray events form the main background when looking for gamma-ray sources, and therefore IACT sensitivity is significantly driven by the capability to distinguish between these two types of events.

Studies of the nature of the low-energy, gamma-like background for Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.04245]
 GO
The upcoming Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) project is expected to provide unprecedented sensitivity in the low-energy ( <~100 GeV) range for Cherenkov telescopes. In order to exploit fully the potential of the telescopes the standard analysis methods for gamma/hadron separation might need to be revised. [...]

A Monte Carlo simulation study for cosmic-ray chemical composition measurement with Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.03241]
 GO
Our Galaxy is filled with cosmic-ray particles and more than 98% of them are atomic nuclei. In order to clarify their origin and acceleration mechanism, chemical composition measurements of these cosmic rays with wide energy coverage play an important role. [...]

Gammapy - A prototype for the CTA science tools
[arXiv:1709.01751]
 GO
Gammapy is a Python package for high-level gamma-ray data analysis built on Numpy, Scipy and Astropy. It enables us to analyze gamma-ray data and to create sky images, spectra and lightcurves, from event lists and instrument response information, and to determine the position, morphology and spectra of gamma-ray sources.

The ARCADE Raman Lidar and atmospheric simulations for the Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.04246]
 GO
The CTA is the next generation of ground based very high energy gamma ray Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes. Since observations with this technique are affected by atmospheric conditions, an accurate knowledge of the atmospheric properties is fundamental to improve the precision and duty cycle of the CTA.

Atmospheric calibration of the Cherenkov Telescope Array
[arXiv:1709.04273]
 GO
Atmospheric monitoring is an integral part of the design of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), as atmospheric conditions affect the observations by Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACT) in multiple ways. The variable optical properties of the atmosphere are a major contribution to the systematic uncertainty in the determination of the energy and flux of the gamma photons. [...]
