asmooth (asmooth-2.32) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


Single top-hat convolver

smoothstyle=`simple', convolverstyle=`tophat'.

The convolving kernel approximates a filled circle, viz:

$\displaystyle c_{x,y} = A \textrm{ for $x^2+y^2 \le r^2$, 0 else.}
$

The radius $r$ is read from the parameter width. The convolver array is again square and of side length $2N+1$, where $N$ equals the integer part of $r$. If normalize=`yes', $A^{-1}$ is set from $\sum\sum c$ as before, otherwise $A$ = 1.
