get_source

Context: modeling

Synopsis

Return the source model expression for a data set.

Syntax

get_source(id=None)

id - int or str, optional

Description

This returns the model expression created by `set_model` or `set_source` . It does not include any instrument response.


Examples

Example 1

Return the source expression for the default data set, display it, and then find the number of parameters in it:

>>> src = get_source()
>>> print(src)
>>> len(src.pars)
5

Example 2

Set the source expression for data set 'obs2' to be equal to the model of data set 'obs1' multiplied by a scalar value:

>>> set_source('obs2', const1d.norm * get_source('obs1'))

PARAMETERS

The parameter for this function is:

Parameter Definition
id The data set containing the source expression. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by `get_default_id` .

Return value

The return value from this function is:

model -- This can contain multiple model components. Changing attributes of this model changes the model used by the data set.
