# ExponentialCutoffPowerLaw1D¶

class astropy.modeling.powerlaws.ExponentialCutoffPowerLaw1D(amplitude=1, x_0=1, alpha=1, x_cutoff=1, **kwargs)[source]

One dimensional power law model with an exponential cutoff.

Parameters: amplitude : float Model amplitude x_0 : float Reference point alpha : float Power law index x_cutoff : float Cutoff point

Notes

Model formula (with $$A$$ for amplitude and $$\alpha$$ for alpha):

$f(x) = A (x / x_0) ^ {-\alpha} \exp (-x / x_{cutoff})$

Attributes Summary

 alpha amplitude input_units This property is used to indicate what units or sets of units the evaluate method expects, and returns a dictionary mapping inputs to units (or None if any units are accepted). param_names x_0 x_cutoff

Methods Summary

input_units

This property is used to indicate what units or sets of units the evaluate method expects, and returns a dictionary mapping inputs to units (or None if any units are accepted).

Model sub-classes can also use function annotations in evaluate to indicate valid input units, in which case this property should not be overridden since it will return the input units based on the annotations.
