scaling_relation_curve_fit
(model_func, y_values, y_errs, x_values, x_errs=None, y_norm=None, x_norm=None, x_lims=None, start_pars=None, y_name='Y', x_name='X')[source]¶ A function to fit a scaling relation with the scipy nonlinear least squares implementation (curve fit), generate an XGA ScalingRelation product, and return it.
 Parameters
model_func (FunctionType) – The function object of the model you wish to fit. PLEASE NOTE, the function must be defined in the style used in xga.models.misc; i.e. powerlaw(x: np.ndarray, k: float, a: float), where the first argument is for x values, and the following arguments are all fit parameters.
y_values (Quantity) – The y data values to fit to.
y_errs (Quantity) – The y error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of y_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
x_values (Quantity) – The x data values to fit to.
x_errs (Quantity) – The x error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of x_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
y_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the y data by.
x_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the x data by.
x_lims (Quantity) – The range of x values in which this relation is valid, default is None. If this information is supplied, please pass it as a Quantity array, with the first element being the lower bound and the second element being the upper bound.
start_pars (list) – The start parameters for the curve_fit run, default is None, which means curve_fit will use all ones.
y_name (str) – The name to be used for the yaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
x_name (str) – The name to be used for the xaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
 Returns
An XGA ScalingRelation object with all the information about the data and fit, a view method, and a predict method.
 Return type

xga.relations.fit.
scaling_relation_odr
(model_func, y_values, y_errs, x_values, x_errs=None, y_norm=None, x_norm=None, x_lims=None, start_pars=None, y_name='Y', x_name='X')[source]¶ A function to fit a scaling relation with the scipy orthogonal distance regression implementation, generate an XGA ScalingRelation product, and return it.
 Parameters
model_func (FunctionType) – The function object of the model you wish to fit. PLEASE NOTE, the function must be defined in the style used in xga.models.misc; i.e. powerlaw(x: np.ndarray, k: float, a: float), where the first argument is for x values, and the following arguments are all fit parameters. The scipy ODR implementation requires functions of a different style, and I try to automatically convert the input function to that style, but to help that please avoid using one letter parameter names in any custom function you might want to use.
y_values (Quantity) – The y data values to fit to.
y_errs (Quantity) – The y error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of y_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
x_values (Quantity) – The x data values to fit to.
x_errs (Quantity) – The x error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of x_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
y_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the y data by.
x_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the x data by.
x_lims (Quantity) – The range of x values in which this relation is valid, default is None. If this information is supplied, please pass it as a Quantity array, with the first element being the lower bound and the second element being the upper bound.
start_pars (list) – The start parameters for the ODR run, default is all ones.
y_name (str) – The name to be used for the yaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
x_name (str) – The name to be used for the xaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
 Returns
An XGA ScalingRelation object with all the information about the data and fit, a view method, and a predict method.
 Return type

xga.relations.fit.
scaling_relation_lira
(y_values, y_errs, x_values, x_errs=None, y_norm=None, x_norm=None, x_lims=None, y_name='Y', x_name='X', num_steps=100000, num_chains=4, num_burn_in=10000)[source]¶ A function to fit a power law scaling relation with the excellent R fitting package LIRA (https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stv2374), this function requires a valid R installation, along with LIRA (and its dependencies such as JAGS), as well as the Python module rpy2.
 Parameters
y_values (Quantity) – The y data values to fit to.
y_errs (Quantity) – The y error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of y_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
x_values (Quantity) – The x data values to fit to.
x_errs (Quantity) – The x error values of the data. These should be supplied as either a 1D Quantity with length N (where N is the length of x_values), or an Nx2 Quantity with lower and upper errors.
y_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the y data by.
x_norm (Quantity) – Quantity to normalise the x data by.
x_lims (Quantity) – The range of x values in which this relation is valid, default is None. If this information is supplied, please pass it as a Quantity array, with the first element being the lower bound and the second element being the upper bound.
y_name (str) – The name to be used for the yaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
x_name (str) – The name to be used for the xaxis of the scaling relation (DON’T include the unit, that will be inferred from the astropy Quantity.
num_steps (int) – The number of steps to take in each chain.
