stingray is a python framework that assists astronomers in spectral-timing(time-series) analysis of X-ray observations from Black Holes, Pulsars etc. stingray provides methods to generate lightcurves, periodograms and cross-spectra diagrams

Stingray deals with fairly large-sized objects and datasets. This creates bottlenecks in the library, leading to a compromise between accuracy/precision and acceptable computing times.

This project performs the necessary optimizations i.e. parallelizing computations, efficient memory management to speed-up stingray and support analysis of larger-than-memory datasets; ultimately eliminating bottlenecks from stingray.
