eimsim (eimsim-2.4.2) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

The task eimsim

It is not expected that the user will run this task directly: instead, the user should run eimsimbatch, which calls eimsim $N$ times, where $N$ is a user-specifiable number. All necessary eimsim parameters are also parameters of eimsimbatch, which passes them straight through to the subtask. eimsimbatch just contains a loop for performing the $N$ calls, plus some machinery for cleaning up, and for `nice' stopping. Thus it makes sense to place most of the detailed description of the simulation within the present document rather than in the documentation for eimsimbatch.

Task eimsim does 9 things in sequence, described in the following subsubsections:
