LineSegment_AT — Finds segments of line emission in spectra.

This module defines the LineSegment_AT class.


Task for detecting segments of emission from an input spectrum, given cutoffs based on the rms noise.

The produced LineSegment_BDP contains a list of all line segments found in the input spectrum. Additionally a spectral plot with overlaid segments is produced for each input spectrum.

numsigma: float
Minimum intensity, in terms of one sigma rms noise, to consider a given channel to not be noise. Default: 5.0.
minchan: int
Minimum number of consecutive channels above numsigma to consider them part of a line. Default: 5.
maxgap: int
The maximum gap to allow between clusters of channels to consider them to be separate lines. Default: 3.
segment: string
The name of the segment finder algorithm to use; choices are: ASAP and ADMIT. (see ASAPSegmentFinder — Finds segments of emission within a spectrum. and ADMITSegmentFinder — Finds segments of emission within a spectrum. for details of each) Default: “ADMIT”.
smooth: list
Use this parameter to smooth the input spectrum. Format is a list containing the name of the smoothing algorithm followed by the parameters for the algorithm, given in the order they are defined in the documentation. The algorithms are: boxcar, gaussian, hanning, savgol, triangle, and welch. All but savgol take a single integer parameter for the width. See Filter1D — 1-dimensional spectral filtering. for details on the individual algorithms and their keywords. To do no smoothing, set the value to []. Example: [“boxcar”, 7] will do a boxcar smooth with a width of 7. Default: [].
recalcnoise: bool
A boolean to indicate whether the noise should be recalculated after smoothing. True indicates that the noise should be recalculated, False indicates that the noise of the unsmoothed spectrum should be used. Default: False.
csub: list
The polynomial order to use for fitting the continuum of CubeStats and CubeSpec based spectra. All CubeStats based spectra must be continuum subtracted in order to obtain proper fits (peak, fwhm), but continuum subtraction for CubeSpectrum based spectra is optional. The first argument in the list is the order of polynomial to use for the CubeStats based spectrum and the second is the order of fit to use for CubeSpec based spectra. Default: [1, None] (1st order for CubeStat and no fitting for Cubespec based spectra).
iterate: bool
If True then iterate for both the segment finder and the peak finder to make them both sensitive to wide and strong narrow lines. Default: True.
Input BDPs

At least one of the following BDPs must be specified.

CubeSpectrum_BDP: count: 1 (optional)
Input spectrum, as from CubeSpectrum_AT.
CubeStats_BDP: count: 1 (optional)
Alternative input spectrum, as from CubeStats_AT.
