Super exponential cutoff power law model used for 4FGL

This model parametrises super exponential cutoff power-law model spectrum used for 4FGL.

It is defined by the following equation:

\[\phi(E) = \phi_0 \cdot \left(\frac{E}{E_0}\right)^{-\Gamma_1} \exp \left( a \left( E_0 ^{\Gamma_2} - E^{\Gamma_2} \right) \right)\]

See Equation (3) in https://arxiv.org/pdf/1902.10045.pdf

Example plot

Here is an example plot of the model:

from astropy import units as u
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from gammapy.modeling.models import (
    Models,
    SkyModel,
    SuperExpCutoffPowerLaw4FGLSpectralModel,
)

energy_bounds = [0.1, 100] * u.TeV
model = SuperExpCutoffPowerLaw4FGLSpectralModel(
    index_1=1,
    index_2=2,
    amplitude="1e-12 TeV-1 cm-2 s-1",
    reference="1 TeV",
    expfactor=1e-2,
)
model.plot(energy_bounds)
plt.grid(which="both")
plt.ylim(1e-24, 1e-10)
plot super exp cutoff powerlaw 4fgl

YAML representation

Here is an example YAML file using the model:
