Introduction

This chapter demonstrates the use of XSPEC. The brief discussion of data and response files is followed by fully worked examples using real data that include all the screen input and output with a variety of plots. The topics covered are as follows: defining models, fitting data, determining errors, fitting more than one set of data simultaneously, simulating data, and producing plots.
