Hello, IPython notebook.

Abstract

This is an example article showing Authorea’s new iPython integration features. Take a look at the figures in this paper. When you hover on a figure, a “Launch Ipython” button should appear. Click it and you’ll be spinning a virtual machine which takes all analysis (iPython notebooks, makefiles, etc) and data behind that plot and runs it for you to play with. Enjoy!

Introduction

History shows Galileo to be much more than an astronomical hero, though. His clear and careful record keeping and publication style not only let Galileo understand the Solar System, it continues to let anyone understand how Galileo did it. Galileo’s notes directly integrated his data (drawings of Jupiter and its moons), key metadata (timing of each observation, weather, telescope properties), and text (descriptions of methods, analysis, and conclusions). Critically, when Galileo included the information from those notes in Siderius Nuncius (Galilei 1610), this integration of text, data and metadata was preserved, as shown in Figure 1. Galileo’s work advanced the “Scientific Revolution,” and his approach to observation and analysis contributed significantly to the shaping of today’s modern ”Scientific Method” (Galilei 1618, Drake 1957).
