nteea: non-thermal pair plasma

A nonthermal pair plasma model based on that of Lightman & Zdziarski  (1987, ApJ 319, 643) from Magdziarz and Zdziarski. It includes angle-dependent reflection from Magdziarz & Zdziarski (1995, MNRAS 273, 837).  In versions 1.1 and above the Compton reflection is done through an internal call to the reflct model. The Greens' function integration required for the Compton reflection calculation is performed to an accuracy of  0.01 (i.e. 1%). This can be changed using e.g. xset NTEEA_PRECISION 0.05.The abundances are set up by the command abund. Send questions or comments to aaz@camk.edu.pl
