AHELP for CIAO 4.11 Sherpa v1


Context: models


angle-dependent reflection from an ionized disk XSpec convolution model *Experimental*.


This implements the XSPEC xilconv convolution model.

xsxilconv Parameters

Number Name Description
1 rel_refl the relative reflection normalization
2 redshift redshift
3 Fe_abund iron abundance relative to Solar; all other elements are assumed to have Solar abundance.
4 cosIncl cos i, the inclination angle
5 log_xi the ionization parameter used by the table models
6 cutoff the exponential cut-off energy (keV)

Loading the X-Spec convolution models

Please see ahelp xsconvolve for information on how to load the model.
