## References

Here is a convenient list of p3d-related references, with a short description of each paper. All references were collected in a plain-text file that can be used with latex/pdftex and bibtex: p3drefs.bib.

If your research benefits from the use of p3d, we would appreciate the following acknowledgement in your paper: "This research has made use of the integral-field spectroscopy data-reduction tool p3d, which is provided by the Leibniz-Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam (AIP)."
