Review Status

Date Reviewed:



An LatticeModel is a base class for Models that can be represented by Lattices. It is expected that this class will be mainly used as base classes for other classes which will then provide the solve() functions necessary to update the model given an equation.

However this class does not contain any pure virtual functions and hence can be used "as is". An example of this is given below. For an example of how this class can be used by derived classes see the HogbomCleanModel class.


LatticeModel<casacore::Float> currentModel(); // Cannot use the model yet!
casacore::PagedImage<casacore::Float> bestGuess(Iposition(2,32,32));
... put your best guess into the casacore::Matrix..\.
currentModel.setModel(bestGuess); // This does a real copy
ConvolutionEquation eqn(psf, dirty); // psf, and dirty are PagedImages defined
// elsewhere.
eqn.evaluate(result, currentModel); // Here result is the convolution of
// of the model with the psf.


All the different image plane based clean algorithms have a common implementation in that they can use an casacore::Lattice (ie, casacore::PagedImage) to store the current model. This class provides a way to abstract this functionality.

Template Type Argument Requirements (T)

the template arguement for this class can be just about anything, the use of this class with an equation class will significantly restrict the possible templates. I have used this class (or derivations of it) with the following data types. Float StokesVector

virtual void casa::LatticeModel::setModel ( const casacore::Lattice< casacore::Float > &  model)

Change the underlying Model to to the one specified.

Reference semantics are used so that no data is copied.
