eimsimreduce (eimsim-2.4.2) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
entrystagenostringmergemerge-bias-completeness-reliability
This allows the user to enter the eimsimreduce script at one of several places in its processing sequence.
 
finalstagenostringreliabilitymerge-bias-completeness-reliability
This allows the user to exit the eimsimreduce script at one of several places in its processing sequence.
 
simgensubdirnostringsim_generic 
The task writes non-observation-specific output to this directory.
 
srcspecsetnodatasetsrcspec.fits 
This is the name of a FITS dataset which contains specification of the source probability distributions and also band-related specifications. See the `input files' sections of the eimsimprep and eimsim documents for a detailed description. Example files can be found in $SAS_DIR/lib/data/eimsimdata/ .
 
biashistobinsizenoreal0.1 
The size (in log10(x)) of the X-axis of the histogram created by eimsimbias. This X axis is log10($S$) where $S$ is flux in CGS units.
 
comphistobinsizenoreal0.1 
The size (in log10(x)) of the X-axis of the histogram created by eimsimcompleteness. This X axis is log10($S$) where $S$ is flux in CGS units.
 
relhistobinsizenoreal0.1 
The size (in log10(x)) of the X-axis of the histogram created by eimsimreliability. This X axis is log10( $P_\mathrm{null}$) where $P_\mathrm{null}$ = ln(DET_ML).
 
probcutoffnoreal0.05 
Detections which have values of MATCH_PNULL which are lower than this cutoff are (subject to some correction for statistical bias in their numbers) are considered for statistical purposes to be `genuine' detections.
 
astestnoboolno 
If `yes', no tasks are called.
