Then a conversion factor calculated from simulated spectra is used to infer the number density profile.
Depending on the chosen surface brightness model, the inverse abel transform may be performed using an analytical solution, or numerical methods.
 Parameters
sources (GalaxyCluster/ClusterSample) – A GalaxyCluster or ClusterSample object to measure density profiles for.
model (str/List[str]/BaseModel1D/List[BaseModel1D]) – The model(s) to be fit to the cluster surface profile(s). You may pass the string name of a model (for single or multiple clusters), a single instance of an XGA model class (for single or multiple clusters), a list of string names (one entry for each cluster being analysed), or a list of XGA model instances (one entry for each cluster being analysed).
fit_method (str) – The method for the profile object to use to fit the model, default is mcmc.
outer_radius (str/Quantity) –

use_peak (bool) – If true the measured peak will be used as the central coordinate of the profile.
pix_step (int) – The width (in pixels) of each annular bin for the profiles, default is 1.
min_snr (int/float) – The minimum allowed signal to noise for the surface brightness profiles. Default is 0, which disables automatic rebinning.

lo_en (Quantity) – The lower energy limit of the combined ratemap used to calculate density.
hi_en (Quantity) – The upper energy limit of the combined ratemap used to calculate density.
psf_corr (bool) – Default True, whether PSF corrected ratemaps will be used to make the surface brightness profile, and thus the density (if False density results could be incorrect).
psf_model (str) – If PSF corrected, the PSF model used.
psf_bins (int) – If PSF corrected, the number of bins per side.
psf_algo (str) – If PSF corrected, the algorithm used.
psf_iter (int) – If PSF corrected, the number of algorithm iterations.
num_walkers (int) – If using mcmc fitting, the number of walkers to use. Default is 20.

min_counts (float) – The minimum counts per channel, if the spectra that were used for fakeit were grouped by minimum counts.
min_sn (float) – The minimum signal to noise per channel, if the spectra that were used for fakeit were grouped by minimum signal to noise.
over_sample (float) – The level of oversampling applied on the spectra that were used for fakeit.
obs_id (str/list) – A specific ObsID(s) to measure the density from. This should be a string if a single source is being analysed, and a list of ObsIDs the same length as the number of sources otherwise. The default is None, in which case the combined data will be used to measure the density profile.
inst (str/list) – A specific instrument(s) to measure the density from. This can either be passed as a single string (e.g. ‘pn’) if only one source is being analysed, or the same instrument should be used for every source in a sample, or a list of strings if different instruments are required for each source. The default is None, in which case the combined data will be used to measure the density profile.
conv_temp (Quantity) –
If set this will override XGA measured temperatures within the conv_outer_radius, and the fakeit run to calculate the normalisation conversion factor will use these temperatures. The quantity
should have an entry for each cluster being analysed. Default is None.
conv_outer_radius (str/Quantity) – The outer radius within which to generate spectra and measure temperatures for the conversion factor calculation, default is ‘r500’. An astropy quantity may also be passed, with either a single value or an entry for each cluster being analysed.
inv_abel_method (str) – The method which should be used for the inverse abel transform of model which is fitted to the surface brightness profile. This overrides the default method for the model, which is either ‘analytical’ for models with an analytical solution to the inverse abel transform, or ‘direct’ for models which don’t have an analytical solution. Default is None.
num_cores (int) – The number of cores that the evselect call and XSPEC functions are allowed to use.

First checks whether the required annular spectra already exist and have been fit using XSPEC, if not then they are generated and fitted, and APEC normalisation profiles will be produced (with projected temperature profiles also being made as a useful extra). Then the apec normalisation profile will be used, with knowledge of the source’s redshift and chosen analysis cosmology, to produce a density profile from the APEC normalisation.

If you are generating for multiple sources then you can also pass a Quantity with one entry per source.
num_dens (bool) – If True then a number density profile will be generated, otherwise a mass density profile will be generated.

exp_corr (bool) – Should signal to noises be measured with exposure time correction, default is True. I recommend that this be true for combined observations, as exposure time could change quite dramatically across the combined product.
group_spec (bool) – A boolean flag that sets whether generated spectra are grouped or not.
min_counts (float) – If generating a grouped spectrum, this is the minimum number of counts per channel. To disable minimum counts set this parameter to None.

For the sake of convenience, I have taken away a lot of choices that can be passed into the density and temperature measurement routines, and if you would like more control then please manually define a specific entropy profile object.
This function uses the inv_abel_fitted_model density measurement function, and the onion_deproj_temp_prof temperature measurement function (with the minimum signal to noise criteria for deciding on the annular spectra sizes).
The bulk of this code is the same as the hydrostatic mass measurement convenience function that also uses the inverse Abel density method, and the onion peeling temperature method, as the same physical information is required to measure the entropy.
 Parameters

fit_method (str) – The method to use for fitting profiles within this function, default is ‘mcmc’.
num_walkers (int) – If fit_method is ‘mcmc’ this is the number of walkers to initialise for the ensemble sampler.

 Return type
Tuple[Union[DataFrame, List[DataFrame]], Union[DataFrame, List[DataFrame]]]

xga.sourcetools.match.
on_xmm_match
(src_ra, src_dec, num_cores=1)[source]¶ An extension to the simple_xmm_match function, this first finds ObsIDs close to the input coordinate(s), then it generates exposure maps for those observations, and finally checks to see whether the value of the exposure maps at an input coordinate is zero. If the value is zero for all the instruments of an observation, then that coordinate does not fall on the observation, otherwise if even one of the instruments has a nonzero exposure, the coordinate does fall on the observation.
 Parameters
src_ra (float/np.ndarray) – RA coordinate(s) of the source(s), in degrees. To find matches for multiple coordinate pairs, pass an array.
src_dec (float/np.ndarray) – Dec coordinate(s) of the source(s), in degrees. To find matches for multiple coordinate pairs, pass an array.
num_cores (int) – The number of cores to use, default is set to 90% of system cores. This is only relevant if multiple coordinate pairs are passed.
 Returns
For a single input coordinate, a numpy array of ObsID(s) will be returned. For multiple input coordinates an array of arrays of ObsID(s) and None values will be returned. Each entry corresponds to the input coordinate array, a None value indicates that the coordinate did not fall on an XMM observation at all.

xga.sourcetools.match.
xmm_region_match
(src_ra, src_dec, src_type, num_cores=1)[source]¶ A function which, if XGA has been configured with access to pregenerated region files, will search for region matches for a set of source coordinates passed in by the user. A region match is defined as when a source coordinate falls within a source region with a particular colour (largely used to represent point vs extended)  the type of region that should be matched to can be defined using the src_type argument.
The simple_xmm_match function will be run before the source matching process, to narrow down the sources which need to have the more expensive region matching performed, as well as to identify which ObsID(s) should be examined for each source.
 Parameters
src_ra (float/np.ndarray) – RA coordinate(s) of the source(s), in degrees. To find matches for multiple coordinate pairs, pass an array.
src_dec (float/np.ndarray) – Dec coordinate(s) of the source(s), in degrees. To find matches for multiple coordinate pairs, pass an array.
src_type (str/List[str]) – The type(s) of region that should be matched to. Pass either ‘ext’ or ‘pnt’ or a list containing both.
num_cores (int) – The number of cores that can be used for the matching process.
 Returns
An array the same length as the sets of input coordinates (ordering is the same). If there are no matches for a source then the element will be None, if there are matches then the element will be a dictionary, with the key(s) being ObsID(s) and the values being a list of region objects (or more likely just one object).

 Parameters
sources (ClusterSample) – The source objects that will contribute to the stacked brightness profile.
model (str) – The model to fit to the brightness profiles.
scale_radius (str) – The overdensity radius to scale the cluster radii by, all GalaxyCluster objects must have an entry for this radius.
fit_method (str) – The method to use when fitting the model to the profile.
use_peak (bool) – Controls whether the peak position is used as the centre of the brightness profile for each GalaxyCluster object.
model_priors (list) – A list of priors to use when fitting the model with MCMC, default is None in which case the default priors for the selected model are used.
model_start_pars (list) – A list of start parameters to use when fitting with methods like curve_fit, default is None in which case the default start parameters for the selected model are used.
pix_step (int) – The width (in pixels) of each annular bin for the individual profiles, default is 1.
radii (ndarray) – The radii (in units of scale_radius) at which to measure and stack surface brightness.
min_snr (int/float) – The minimum allowed signal to noise for individual cluster profiles. Default is 0, which disables automatic rebinning.
lo_en (Quantity) – The lower energy limit of the data that goes into the stacked profiles.
hi_en (Quantity) – The upper energy limit of the data that goes into the stacked profiles.
custom_temps (Quantity) – Temperatures at which to calculate conversion factors for each cluster in sources, they will overwrite any temperatures measured by XGA. A single temperature can be passed to be used for all clusters in sources. If None, appropriate temperatures will be retrieved from the source objects.
sim_met (float/List) – The metallicity(s) to use when calculating the conversion factor. Pass a single float to use the same value for all sources, or pass a list to use a different value for each.
abund_table (str) – The abundance table to use for the temperature fit and conversion factor calculation.
psf_corr (bool) – If True, PSF corrected ratemaps will be used to make the brightness profile stack.
psf_model (str) – If PSF corrected, the PSF model used.
psf_bins (int) – If PSF corrected, the number of bins per side.
psf_algo (str) – If PSF corrected, the algorithm used.
psf_iter (int) – If PSF corrected, the number of algorithm iterations.
num_cores (int) – The number of cores to use when calculating the brightness profiles, the default is 90% of available cores.
model_realisations (int) – The number of random realisations of a model to generate.
conf_level (int) – The confidence level at which to measure uncertainties of parameters and profiles.
ml_mcmc_start (bool) – If True then maximum likelihood estimation will be used to generate start parameters for MCMC fitting, otherwise they will be randomly drawn from parameter priors
ml_rand_dev (float) – The scale of the random deviation around start parameters used for starting the different walkers in the MCMC ensemble sampler.
num_walkers (int) – The number of walkers in the MCMC ensemble sampler.
num_steps (int) – The number of steps in the chain that each walker should take.
show_images (bool) – If true then for each source in the stack an image and profile will be displayed side by side, with annuli overlaid on the image.
figsize (tuple) – The desired figure size for the plot.

shell_ann_vol_intersect
(shell_radii, ann_radii)[source]¶ This function calculates the volume intersection matrix of a set of circular annuli and a set of spherical shells. It is assumed that the annuli and shells have the same x and y origin. The intersection is derived using simple geometric considerations, have a look in the appendix of DOI 10.1086/300836.
 Parameters
shell_radii (ndarray/Quantity) – The radii of the spherical shells.
ann_radii (ndarray/Quantity) – The radii of the circular annuli (DOES NOT need to be the same length as shell_radii).
 Returns
A 2D array containing the volumes of intersections between the circular annuli defined by i_ann and o_ann, and the spherical shells defined by i_sph and o_sph. Annular radii are along the ‘x’ axis and shell radii are along the ‘y’ axis.
 Return type
Union[np.ndarray, Quantity]

shell_volume
(inn_radius, out_radius)[source]¶ Silly little function that calculates the volume of a spherical shell with inner radius inn_radius and outer radius out_radius.
 Parameters
inn_radius (Quantity/np.ndarray) – The inner radius of the spherical shell.
out_radius (Quantity/np.ndarray) – The outer radius of the spherical shell.
 Returns
The volume of the specified shell
 Return type
Union[Quantity, np.ndarray]
