The XSPEC kerrbb model: multi-temperature blackbody model for thin accretion disk around a Kerr black hole.
xskerrbb The xskerrbb model is an additive model component.
The model is described at  .
>>> create_model_component("xskerrbb", "mdl") >>> print(mdl)
Create a component of the xskerrbb model and display its default parameters. The output is:

The attributes for this object are:
The ratio of the disk power produced by a torque at the disk inner boundary to the disk power arising from accretion. See  for more details.
The specific angular momentum of the black hole in units of the black hole mass M (when G=c=1). It should be in the range [0, 1).
The disk inclination angle, in degrees. A face-on disk has i=0. It must be less than or equal to 85 degrees.
The mass of the black hole, in solar masses.
The "effective" mass accretion rate in units of 10^18 g/s. See  for more details.
The distance from the observer to the black hole, in units of kpc.
The spectral hardening factor, Tcol/Teff. See  for more details.
A flag to switch on or off the effect of self irradiation: when greater than zero the self irradition is included, otherwise it is not. This parameter can not be thawed.
A flag to switch on or off the effect of limb darkening: when greater than zero the disk emission is assumed to be limb darkened, otherwise it is isotropic. This parameter can not be thawed.
The normalization of the model. It should be fixed to 1 if the inclination, mass, and distance are frozen.
