This is the bibliography containing the literature references for the implemented methods
referenced from the Gammapy docs.
The best reference to TeV data analysis is Chapter 7 of Mathieu de Naurois’s habilitation thesis.

Other gamma-ray packages
Here are some other software packages for gamma-ray astronomy:
- Gammalib /ctools is a C++ package with Python wrapper, similar to the Fermi-LAT ScienceTools,
that to a large degree uses the same input data formats as Gammapy.
- 3ML is a Python package that uses existing packages (e.g. the Fermi-LAT ScienceTools or the HAWC software)
to deal with the data and IRFs and compute the likelihood for a given model.
