linearmosaic.setlinmostype - Function

3.1.3 Use this function to set if you want to mosaic in flatnoise domain


Description

Use this function if the mosaicing is to be done using a non optimal weighting mode.

For now optimal (which is the default) follows this equation

        ∑
 lm     --p-Ap(θ)(Ip(θ)Ap(θ))wp
I  (θ) =     ∑p  A2p(θ)wp
(3.2)

And pbweight follows this one

        ∑
 lm      --p(Ip(θ)Ap(θ))wp-
I  (θ) =   ∑p  Ap(θ)wp
(3.3)

where Ap(θ) is the primary beam (PB) of a given pointing p, wp is a sensitivity weight and the image of that pointing is Ip(θ); the linear mosaic being Ilm(θ) For now wp = 1
