Context: models

Synopsis

The XSPEC nsagrav model: NS H atmosphere model for different g.

Syntax

xsnsagrav

The xsnsagrav model is an additive model component.

Description

The model is described at [1] .


Example

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

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

mdl
   Param        Type          Value          Min          Max      Units
   -----        ----          -----          ---          ---      -----
   mdl.LogT_eff thawed            6          5.5          6.5          K
   mdl.NSmass   thawed          1.4          0.3          2.5       Msun
   mdl.NSrad    thawed           10            6           20         km
   mdl.norm     thawed            1            0        1e+24           

ATTRIBUTES

The attributes for this object are:

LogT_eff

The log of Teff, the unredshifted effective temperature.

NSmass

The neutron star gravitational mass, in units of the solar mass.

NSrad

The "true" neutron star radius, in km.

norm

The normalization is 1/D^2, where D is the distance to the neutron star in pc.
