Point Source Variability Table
This table lists flux densities for each year of the WMAP mission for each of the 501 sources in the five-band nine-year WMAP point source catalog. For each source, the yearly flux variation with respect to the nine-year mean flux was obtained by fitting a Gaussian to the (individual year minus nine-year) difference map for each year 1--9. The position of the Gaussian is fixed to the source position in the nine-year catalog and the width of the Gaussian is fixed to the beam width. The only free parameters are the Gaussian peak brightness and the base level. The table lists yearly flux densities obtained by adding the nine-year mean flux to the yearly flux variation. The error values can be used with year-to-year flux differences to estimate the significance of variability. For bands in which a nine-year flux is not listed in the point source catalog, the yearly fluxes and errors in this table are set to -9.99.
