ExpDecay temporal model

This model parametrises an ExpDecay time model.

\[F(t) = exp(t - t_{ref})/t0\]

Example plot

Here is an example plot of the model:

from astropy import units as u
from astropy.time import Time
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

YAML representation

Here is an example YAML file using the model:

from gammapy.modeling.models import (
    ExpDecayTemporalModel,
    Models,
    PowerLawSpectralModel,
    SkyModel,
)

t0 = "5 h"
t_ref = Time("2020-10-01")
time_range = [t_ref, t_ref + 1 * u.d]
expdecay_model = ExpDecayTemporalModel(t_ref=t_ref.mjd * u.d, t0=t0)
expdecay_model.plot(time_range)
plt.grid(which="both")


model = SkyModel(
    spectral_model=PowerLawSpectralModel(),
    temporal_model=expdecay_model,
    name="expdecay_model",
)
models = Models([model])

print(models.to_yaml())
plot expdecay temporal
