get_num_par_thawed

sherpa.astro.ui.get_num_par_thawed(id=None)

Return the number of thawed parameters in a model expression.

The get_num_par_thawed function returns the number of thawed parameters in the model assigned to a data set.

New in version 4.16.1: Linked components are now included without having to include them in the model expression.

Parameters:

id (int or str, optional) – The data set containing the model expression. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by get_default_id.

Returns:

npar – The number of parameters in the model expression. This sums up all the thawed parameters of the components in the expression.

Return type:

int

Raises:

sherpa.utils.err.IdentifierErr – If no model expression has been set for the data set (with set_model or set_source).

Examples

Return the number of thawed parameters for the default data set:

>>> print(get_num_par_thawed())

Find the number of thawed parameters for the model associated with the data set called “jet”:

>>> njet = get_num_par_thawed('jet')
