More models for XSPEC
The following models have been publically released by their authors
but were not included in the latest release (12.8.2). Those that are
table models can simply be downloaded
and used in XSPEC using the
atable or mtable commands. Other models can be installed as local models.
Some of these models are also available through GitHub.
If you have models that you would like to make available to a wider
public please contact Keith Arnaud (Keith.A.Arnaud-at-nasa.gov).
