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:
|kTs||Temperature of the seed blackbody spectrum in keV.|
|gamma||If set to 3 the seed soft spectrum is a blackbody, otherwise it approximates a modified blackbody.|
|kTe||Electron temperature of the subrelativistic outflow in keV.|
|tau||Radial optical depth of the subrelativistic outflow.|
|beta||Bulk outflow velocity of the thermal electrons.|
|fbflag||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).|
|log_A||The geometrical covering factor which determines the relative weights of the seed and comptonized spectra to the total flux.|
|a_boost||The energy index of the Green's function with which the formerly comptonization spectrum is convolved.|
|norm||The normalization of the model: see  for an explanation of the units.|

CIAO 4.14 comes with support for version 12.12.0 of the XSPEC models. This can be checked with the following:
% python -c 'from sherpa.astro import xspec; print(xspec.get_xsversion())' 12.12.0
