Abstract: We have developed a local-detect algorithm using the Mexican-Hat function as a filter to detect X-ray sources in the 3-dimensional space-time domain. Our method takes advantage of the limited spatial and frequency extents of the Mexican-Hat function to allow the correlation to be done in pieces small enough to be handled on standard workstations. We apply this algorithm to ROSAT PSPC data of the Pleiades and compare the resulting source list with that obtained by `traditional' means.
