The sherpa module
Modeling and fitting package for scientific data analysis
Sherpa is a modeling and fitting package for scientific data analysis. It includes general tools of interest to all users as well as specialized components for particular disciplines (e.g. astronomy).
Note that the top level sherpa package does not import any
subpackages. This allows the user to import a particular component

the standard subpackages, use
import sherpa.all or
from sherpa.all import *.
