Sherpa provides extensive facilities for modeling and fitting data. The topics here range from basic fits using source spectra and responses to more advanced areas, such as simultaneous fits to multiple data sets, accounting for the effects of pileup, and fitting spatial and grating data.

Before fitting ACIS spectral data sets with limited pulse-height ranges, please read the CIAO caveat "Spectral analyses of ACIS data with a limited pulse-height range."
