plot_chisqr

sherpa.astro.ui.plot_chisqr(id=None, replot=False, overplot=False, clearwindow=True, **kwargs)

Plot the chi-squared value for each point in a data set.

This function displays the square of the residuals (data - model) divided by the error, for a data set.

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

  • replot (bool, optional) – Set to True to use the values calculated by the last call to plot_chisqr. The default is False.

  • overplot (bool, optional) – If True then add the data to an exsiting plot, otherwise create a new plot. The default is False.

  • clearwindow (bool, optional) – Should the existing plot area be cleared before creating this new plot (e.g. for multi-panel plots)?

Raises

sherpa.utils.err.IdentifierErr – If the data set does not exist or a source expression has not been set.

Examples

Plot the chi-quare values for each point in the default data set:

>>> plot_chisqr()

Overplot the values from the ‘core’ data set on those from the ‘jet’ dataset:

>>> plot_chisqr('jet')
>>> plot_chisqr('core', overplot=True)
