clumin: calculate luminosity
A convolution model to calculate the
luminosity of other model components. For example:
clumin*phabs*(pow + gauss)
with the normalization of the powerlaw model fixed to a nonzero value
gives the luminosity and error on the entire model.
phabs*clumin*(pow + gauss)
again with the normalization of the powerlaw fixed to a nonzero value
gives the unabsorbed luminosity and error. Finally,
phabs*(pow + clumin*gauss)
with the normalizaton of the gaussian fixed to a nonzero value gives the
luminosity and error on the gaussian component. Note that when the clumin model is
used the normalization of one of the additive models must be fixed
to a nonzero value. It is also important to ensure that the energy range
over which the model is calculated (which is determined by the response
matrix in use) covers the energy range for which the luminosity is calculated.
If the model to which the clumin is applied integrates to zero then
a dividebyzero error will occur resulting in NaN values for the fit statistic.
Parameters are:
par1=Emin 
Minimum source frame energy over which luminosity is calculated. 
par2=Emax 
Maximum source frame energy over which luminosity is calculated. 
par3=Redshift 
Redshift of the source. 
par4=lg10Lum 
log (base 10) luminosity in units of erg/s.
