xssmedge

Context: models

Synopsis

The XSPEC smedge model: smeared edge.

Syntax

xssmedge

The xssmedge model is a multiplicative model component.

Description

The model is described at [1] .


Example

>>> create_model_component("xssmedge", "mdl")
>>> print(mdl)

Create a component of the xssmedge model and display its default parameters. The output is:

mdl
   Param        Type          Value          Min          Max      Units
   -----        ----          -----          ---          ---      -----
   mdl.edgeE    thawed            7          0.1          100        keV
   mdl.MaxTau   thawed            1            0            5           
   mdl.index    frozen        -2.67          -10           10           
   mdl.width    thawed           10         0.01          100
