  • Assigned To changed from Tibaldo Luigi to Di Venere Leonardo

#2 Updated by Di Venere Leonardo about 3 years ago

Main idea of the implementation: create a cscript (csextension), inheriting from csobservation.

General parameters:
  • observation parameters (same as ctlike)
  • fitting parameters (ex: “statistic” parameter)
Extension specific parameters
  • source name
  • localization flag (whether of not fit the position)
  • extension flag (whether of not fit the extension)
  • extended model (disk/gaussian/...)

#3 Updated by Di Venere Leonardo about 3 years ago

Additional features to be added:
  • calculate ts_extension = 2* (logL_extended - logL_pointsource)
  • exended source vs multiple point-like sources
  • extension fit in energy bins

#4 Updated by Knödlseder Jürgen almost 2 years ago
