The XSPEC grbcomp model: Comptonization for GRB prompt emission.
xsgrbcomp The xsgrbcomp model is an additive model component.
The model is described at  .
>>> create_model_component("xsgrbcomp", "mdl") >>> print(mdl)
Create a component of the xsgrbcomp model and display its default parameters. The output is:

The attributes for this object are:
Temperature of the seed blackbody spectrum in keV.
If set to 3 the seed soft spectrum is a blackbody, otherwise it approximates a modified blackbody.
Electron temperature of the subrelativistic outflow in keV.
Radial optical depth of the subrelativistic outflow.
Bulk outflow velocity of the thermal electrons.
If set to 0 then only the first-order bulk Comptonization term is considered, otherwise if set to 1 then the second-order term is computed (see  for more details).
The geometrical covering factor which determines the relative weights of the seed and comptonized spectra to the total flux.
The energy index of the Green's function with which the formerly comptonization spectrum is convolved.
The normalization of the model: see  for an explanation of the units.
New in CIAO 4.11
The xsgrbcomp model (added in XSPEC 12.10.0) is new in CIAO 4.11
-  https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/xanadu/xspec/manual/XSmodelGrbcomp.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.
