This is the list of gamma-ray sources seen from the Pass 1 analysis.
The letter "a" is for flagging sources with pre-trials significance >5 sigma but are <5 sigma after accounting for trials. We consider these candidate sources that may become more significant with additional data. We anticipate additional releases with more data and more sensitive analysis in the future following similar convention, e.g. 2HWC, and will include cross-identification tables with the analysis passes and other gamma-ray instruments. Notes:The HAWC array was completed in March 2015 and we anticipate additional release with more data and more sensitive analysis in the future following similar convention, e.g. 2HWC. Auth.:C.
