The table below contains links to software and support files tar files as well as
documentation which allow to simulate events and spectra for the Resolve spectrometer
on XARM . The same files
can be downloaded directly from the XARM FTP.
|Simulation Software, support files and User Guide
tar file (~2.1GB)
The software is part of HEASoft 6.22 and this tar file contains only software routines to simulate events as well as spectra, using XSPEC.
The content includes :
to simulate an event file
skyback to simulate
Sky X-ray Background
to calculate the spectrometer branching ratio
XSPEC for spectra simulation and
XSELECT to extract spectra from event file.
To install the software follow the steps in the
installation instructions . More details on software installation are available from the general
| Support files and responses
tar file (~ 80MB)
This tar file is required by the software simulation tools. It contains the support files necessary to run heasim ,
sxsbranch and the responses to simulate spectra with XSPEC.
| Simulation scripts
This tar file contains the scripts, command files, and support files to execute the examples described in the user guide.
Note it is not necessary to install or run the software with simulations that do not use the examples in the user guide.
| User Guide for Simulation
The User Guide contains the descriptions of the software tasks (heasim, skyback, sxsbranch ), of the support files and responses
necessary to run the simulations as well as step-by-step examples on how to run the software for specific simulations.
