grbm: gamma-ray burst continuum

A model for gamma-ray burst continuum spectra developed by D. Band, et. al., 1993 (ApJ 413, 281).


\begin{displaymath}
A(E)= \left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
K(E/100.)^{\alpha_1} \exp(-...
...x{if $E >
E_c(\alpha_1 - \alpha_2)$} \\
\end{array} \right.
\end{displaymath}

where $E$ is in units of keV and the parameters are:

par1 $\alpha_1$, first power law index
par2 $\alpha_2$, second power law index
par3 $E_c$, characteristic energy in keV
norm $K$, normalization constant
