The XSPEC jet model: Leptonic relativistic jet model.
xsjet The xsjet model is an additive model component.
The model is described at  .
>>> create_model_component("xsjet", "mdl") >>> print(mdl)
Create a component of the xsjet model and display its default parameters. The output is:

The attributes for this object are:
Black hole mass, in solar masses.
Comoving distance, as in XSoptxagnf.
log (accretion power / Eddington luminosity), in units of log L / logLEdd. See  for a full discussion of this parameter.
The inclination angle (deg) between the jet axis and line of sight.
Bulk lorentz factor of the jet.
The angular size scale - in radians - of the jet acceleration region as seen from the black hole. See  for more details.
The vertical distance from the black hole of the jet dissipation region, in units of Rg=GM/c^2. See  for more details.
The magnetic field (in Gauss) in the jet.
The log of the power injected in relativisitic particles, which is measured in ergs/s.
The minimum lorentz factor of the injected electrons.
The lorentz factor of the break in injected electron distribution.
The maximum lorentz factor.
The injected index of the electron distribution below the break.
The injected index of the electron distribution above the break.
The cosmological redshift corresponding to the Dco parameter.
MUST BE FIXED AT UNITY as the jet spectrum normalisation is set by the relativisitic particle power.
New in CIAO 4.11
The xsjet model (added in XSPEC 12.10.0) is new in CIAO 4.11
-  https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/xanadu/xspec/manual/XSmodelJet.html
CIAO 4.11 comes with support for version 12.10.0e of the XSPEC models. This can be checked with the following:
% python -c 'from sherpa.astro import xspec; print(xspec.get_xsversion())' 12.10.0e
See the bugs pages on the Sherpa website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
