sd.fitter.set_gauss_parameters - Function

5.1.4 Set the parameters of Gaussian component
Description

Set the Parameters of a ’Gaussian’ component, set with set_function.

Three arguments, peak, centre, and fwhm, are mandatory to be set. They specifies an initial model of Gaussian component.

The peakfixed, centrefixed, and fwhmfixed are optional parameters to indicate if the paramters should be held fixed during the fitting process. The default is to keep all parameters flexible. If you want to fix one of those parameters, you can do it by setting corresponding arguments (peakfixed, centrefixed, and fwhmfixed) to 1.

The component argument is only effective for multi-component Gaussian fitting. It specifies the number of the component to set the specified parameters.

Example

   f=sd.fitter()  
   s=sd.scantable(’OrionS_rawACSmod_cal’,average=False)  
   f.set_scan(s)  
   # set fit function as gaussian  
   f.set_function(gauss=1)  
   # set gaussian parameter with centre fixed  
   f.set_gauss_parameters(peak=0.5,centre=4100,fwhm=200,centrefixed=1)  
   f.fit()
