The XSPEC pexrav model: reflected powerlaw, neutral medium.
xspexrav The xspexrav model is an additive model component.
The model is described at  .
>>> create_model_component("xspexrav", "mdl") >>> print(mdl)
Create a component of the xspexrav model and display its default parameters. The output is:

The attributes for this object are:
The first power-law photon index.
The cut-off energy (E_c) in keV. Set to 0 for no cut off.
The reflection scaling parameter (a value between 0 and 1 for an isotropic source above the disk, less than 0 for no reflected component).
The redshift of the source.
The abundance of the elements heaver than He relative to their solar abundance, as set by the set_xsabund function.
The iron abundance relative to the solar abundance, as set by the set_xsabund function.
The cosine of the inclination angle in degrees.
The normalization of the model: see  for an explanation of the units.
The precision of the numerical integration can be changed by using the set_xsxset function to set the value of the PEXRAV_PRECISION keyword, which defines the fractional precision. The default is 0.01 (1%).
