Abstract: These notes were originally prepared as additional material for the lessons Ihave given at the summer school Gamma-ray Astrophysics and Multifrequency: Dataanalysis and astroparticle problems, organized by the Department of Physics ofthe University of Perugia Italy on July 3-7, 2006. The necessarily limitedtime of the lessons forced to a drastic selection of the topics and, therefore,I have thought it was useful to complete the slides of the presentation withthe notes you find in these few pages. These notes are a kind of ``link-between the theoretical approach of the University lessons and the practice ofthe real use. During these years, I have seen that this material is useful forstudents that are beginning their thesis on research topics based on the useand the interpretation of data from X- and gamma-ray satellites. Therefore, Ihave thought to update the content of these notes, to translate them intoEnglish and to post on arXiv, in order to make them available to a largerpublic, hoping to give a useful help to other beginners. Since the public isbasically composed of graduating students, I have assumed a well-groundedknowledge of basic astrophysics, the principles of instrumentation for physicalsciences and the statistical analysis. Therefore, I have focused my notes onthe practical issues and given some bibliographic references, just some advice,just to draw the attention on some points that are too much detailed for auniversity lesson. Nevertheless, the bibliography should be also a goodstarting point for those who want to further explore these topics.
