PSFModel

class sherpa.instrument.PSFModel(name='psfmodel', kernel=None)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: sherpa.models.model.Model

Convolve a model by another model or data set.

Notes

A number of attributes are displayed as parameters, if set, but are not handled as parameters. The attributes are: kernel, size, centre, and origin.

Attributes Summary

BETTER_RESOLUTION

SAME_RESOLUTION

WORSE_RESOLUTION

center

array of size parameters

ndim

The dimensionality of the model, if defined, or None.

origin

FFT origin

size

array of size parameters

thawedparhardmaxes

The hard maximum values for the thawed parameters.

thawedparhardmins

The hard minimum values for the thawed parameters.

thawedparmaxes

The maximum limits of the thawed parameters.

thawedparmins

The minimum limits of the thawed parameters.

thawedpars

The thawed parameters of the model.

Methods Summary

calc(*args, **kwargs)

Evaluate the model on a grid.

fold(data)

freeze()

Freeze any thawed parameters of the model.

get_center()

get_kernel(data[, subkernel])

guess(dep, *args, **kwargs)

Set an initial guess for the parameter values.

reset()

Reset the parameter values.

set_center(*args, **kwargs)

startup([cache])

Called before a model may be evaluated multiple times.

teardown()

Called after a model may be evaluated multiple times.

thaw()

Thaw any frozen parameters of the model.

Attributes Documentation

BETTER_RESOLUTION = 1
SAME_RESOLUTION = 0
WORSE_RESOLUTION = -1
center

array of size parameters

ndim = None

The dimensionality of the model, if defined, or None.

origin

FFT origin

size

array of size parameters

thawedparhardmaxes

The hard maximum values for the thawed parameters.

The minimum and maximum range of the parameters can be changed with thawedparmins and thawedparmaxes but only within the range given by thawedparhardmins to thawparhardmaxes.

thawedparhardmins

The hard minimum values for the thawed parameters.

The minimum and maximum range of the parameters can be changed with thawedparmins and thawedparmaxes but only within the range given by thawedparhardmins to thawparhardmaxes.

thawedparmaxes

The maximum limits of the thawed parameters.

Get or set the maximum limits of the thawed parameters of the model as a list of numbers. If there are no thawed parameters then [] is used. The ordering matches that of the pars attribute.

thawedparmins

The minimum limits of the thawed parameters.

Get or set the minimum limits of the thawed parameters of the model as a list of numbers. If there are no thawed parameters then [] is used. The ordering matches that of the pars attribute.

thawedpars, thawedarhardmins, thawedparmaxes

thawedpars

The thawed parameters of the model.

Get or set the thawed parameters of the model as a list of numbers. If there are no thawed parameters then [] is used. The ordering matches that of the pars attribute.

Methods Documentation

calc(*args, **kwargs)[source] [edit on github]

Evaluate the model on a grid.

Parameters
  • p (sequence of numbers) – The parameter values to use. The order matches the pars field.

  • *args – The model grid. The values can be scalar or arrays, and the number depends on the dimensionality of the model and whether it is being evaluated over an integrated grid or at a point (or points).

fold(data)[source] [edit on github]
freeze() [edit on github]

Freeze any thawed parameters of the model.

get_center() [edit on github]
get_kernel(data, subkernel=True)[source] [edit on github]
guess(dep, *args, **kwargs) [edit on github]

Set an initial guess for the parameter values.

Attempt to set the parameter values, and ranges, for the model to match the data values. This is intended as a rough guess, so it is expected that the model is only evaluated a small number of times, if at all.

reset() [edit on github]

Reset the parameter values.

Restores each parameter to the last value it was set to. This allows the parameters to be easily reset after a fit.

set_center(*args, **kwargs) [edit on github]
startup(cache=False) [edit on github]

Called before a model may be evaluated multiple times.

Parameters

cache (bool, optional) – Should a cache be used when evaluating the models.

See also

teardown

teardown() [edit on github]

Called after a model may be evaluated multiple times.

See also

startup

thaw() [edit on github]

Thaw any frozen parameters of the model.

Those parameters that are marked as “always frozen” are skipped.
