GPCAL: Instrumental polarization calibration in VLBI data

Abstract: GPCAL performs instrumental polarization calibration in very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) data. It enhances the calibration accuracy by enabling users to fit the model to multiple calibrators data simultaneously and to take into account the calibrators linear polarization structures instead of using the conventional similarity assumption. GPCAL is based on <a href="https://ascl.net/9911.003">AIPS</a> (ascl:9911.003) and uses <a href="https://ascl.net/1208.020">ParselTongue</a> (ascl:1208.020) to run AIPS tasks.
