Wiki Version:
<p>Beginning in 2022, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will conduct a ten-year survey of the Southern Hemisphere Sky. Thanks to its wide survey area, depth, and cadence, LSST will enable major advances in the study of black hole systems at all mass scales.</p> <p>I will present an overview of LSST with a view towards its contributions to studies of Galactic black hole binaries, Active Galactic Nuclei, Tidal Disruption Events, and Gravitational Wave sources. I will describe the baselined survey cadences and forthcoming opportunities for community input. I will review the LSST data products and services most relevant to time-domain studies. LSST will produce both a nightly alert stream of 10 million difference image sources as well as high-precision annual Data Releases. The former will be accessible to all through community brokers and the latter to data rights holders through the LSST Science Platform; I will describe the features of each. I will discuss expectations for the performance of LSST’s data reduction pipelines in crowded stellar fields such as the Galactic Plane. Finally, I will point out opportunities for science users to preview these tools and pipelines on precursor datasets.</p>
