—Traditional radio telescopes use large steel dishes to observe radio sources. The largest radio telescope in the world, LOFAR, uses tens of thousands of fixed, omni-directional antennas instead, a novel design that promises groundbreaking research in astronomy. Where traditional telescopes use custom-built hardware, LOFAR uses software to do signal(More)
—Dedispersion is a basic algorithm to reconstruct impulsive astrophysical signals. It is used in high sampling-rate radio astronomy to counteract temporal smearing by intervening interstellar medium. To counteract this smearing, the received signal train must be dedispersed for thousands of trial distances, after which the transformed signals are further(More)
