AHELP for CIAO 4.11 Sherpa v1

exp

Context: models

Synopsis

One-dimensional exponential function.

Syntax

exp

Example

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

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

mdl
   Param        Type          Value          Min          Max      Units
   -----        ----          -----          ---          ---      -----
   mdl.offset   thawed            0 -3.40282e+38  3.40282e+38           
   mdl.coeff    thawed           -1 -3.40282e+38  3.40282e+38           
   mdl.ampl     thawed            1            0  3.40282e+38           

ATTRIBUTES

The attributes for this object are:

offset

The offset of the model.

coeff

The scaling factor.

ampl

The amplitude of the model.

Notes

The functional form of the model for points is:

f(x) = ampl * exp(coeff * (x - offset))

and for an integrated grid it is the integral of this over the bin.
