X-ray obscuration and reflection by a toroidal reprocessor, valid in the Compton-thick regime.

MYTorus is a model for X-ray reprocessing in a toroidal geometry (due to T. Yaqoob and K. D. Murphy), that is valid in the Compton-thick regime, for energies up to 500 keV. The model self-consistently includes fluorescent line emission due to Fe Ka and Fe Kb. The necessary files, a comprehensive user manual, and other resources are available from http://www.mytorus.com.

The HEASARC welcomes your participation in a brief survey to capture how users access and utilize HEASARC data, software, and services. The outcome(s) of this survey will be used to guide, prioritize, and plan our activities and development in the coming years. It contains 20 questions, generally takes just a few minutes to complete, and your answers will remain totally anonymous. The survey is open until Dec 18, 2023.
