deconvolver.makegaussian - Function

3.1.2 Make an image with a single gaussian component


Description

Make a model image with the a single gaussian. The properties of the output image (e.g. the co-ordinate system, etc.) are borrowed from the dirty image.

The image is made as follows:

I(x,y)= Delta function of unit amplitude at (0,0)

Temp(x,y) = Gaussian(x,y,Amplitude, Center, Sigma, PA)

I(x,y) = Convovlution of Temp(x,y) with I(x,y).

If normalize=T I(x,y) = I(x,y)/(area under the gaussian).
