AHELP for CIAO 4.13 Sherpa v1

get_bkg_source

Context: data

Synopsis

Return the model expression for the background of a PHA data set.

Syntax

get_bkg_source(id=None, bkg_id=None)

id - int or str, optional
bkg_id - int or str, optional

Description

This returns the model expression created by `set_bkg_model` or `set_bkg_source` . It does not include any instrument response.


Example

Return the background model expression for the default data set:

>>> bkg = get_bkg_source()
>>> len(bkg.pars)
2

PARAMETERS

The parameters for this function are:

Parameter Definition
id The data set to use. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by `get_default_id` .
bkg_id Identify the background component to use, if there are multiple ones associated with the data set.

Return value

The return value from this function is:

model -- This can contain multiple model components. Changing attributes of this model changes the model used by the data set.
