Classifying TESS stellar flares with CNNs
This entry explores how to classify flaring events using the convolutional neural network (CNN) framework from stella. This approach was used to identify flares in high-resolution TESS light curves (2-minute cadence) by Feinstein et al. (2020). The same workflow is presented in simplified form to walk through the construction of the CNN model. The results are then validated and applied to a new dataset.
