pexriv: reflected powerlaw, ionized medium

Exponentially cut off power law spectrum reflected from ionized material (Magdziarz & Zdziarski 1995). Ionization and opacities of the reflecting medium is computed as in the absori model. The output spectrum is the sum of the cut-off power law and the reflection component. The reflection component alone can be obtained for . Then the actual reflection normalization is . Note that you need to then change the limits of to exclude zero (as then the direct component appears). If = 0 there is no cutoff in the power law. The metal and iron abundance are variable with respect to those defined by the command abund.

The core of this model is a Greens' function integration with one numerical integral performed for each model energy. The numerical integration is done using an adaptive method which continues until a given estimated fractional precision is reached. The precision can be changed by setting PEXRIV_PRECISION eg xset PEXRIV_PRECISION 0.05. The default precision is 0.01 (ie 1%).
