The .zip file containing the dataset is organized as follows:
For the files describing lightcurves, the first column denotes the time (in minutes) while the second indicates the normalized total luminosity with 1 being the maximum.
Each row-index from parameters.csv corresponds to the pre- and postimpact lightcurves (e.g. row 28 corresponds to lcvold028.dat and lcvnew028.dat).
The columns in parameters.csv describe (in order) the following:
The goal of the competition is to reconstruct \(\beta\) and \(a/c\) for the test scenarios (i.e. those not in parameters.csv). Reconstruction of \(J_2\) is not required.
