class sncosmo.SALT3Source(modeldir=None, m0file='salt3_template_0.dat', m1file='salt3_template_1.dat', clfile='salt3_color_correction.dat', cdfile='salt3_color_dispersion.dat', lcrv00file='salt3_lc_variance_0.dat', lcrv11file='salt3_lc_variance_1.dat', lcrv01file='salt3_lc_covariance_01.dat', name=None, version=None)[source]

The SALT3 Type Ia supernova spectral timeseries model. Kenworthy et al., 2021, ApJ, submitted. Model definitions are the same as SALT2 except for the errors, which are now given in flux space. Unlike SALT2, no file is used for scaling the errors.

The spectral flux density of this model is given by

\[F(t, \lambda) = x_0 (M_0(t, \lambda) + x_1 M_1(t, \lambda)) \times 10^{-0.4 CL(\lambda) c}\]

where x0, x1 and c are the free parameters of the model, M_0, M_1 are the zeroth and first components of the model, and CL is the colorlaw, which gives the extinction in magnitudes for c=1.

Parameters
modeldirstr, optional

Directory path containing model component files. Default is None, which means that no directory is prepended to filenames when determining their path.

m0file, m1file, clfilestr or fileobj, optional

Filenames of various model components. Defaults are:

  • m0file = ‘salt2_template_0.dat’ (2-d grid)

  • m1file = ‘salt2_template_1.dat’ (2-d grid)

  • clfile = ‘salt2_color_correction.dat’

lcrv00file, lcrv11file, lcrv01file, cdfilestr or fileobj

(optional) Filenames of various model components for model covariance in synthetic photometry. See bandflux_rcov for details. Defaults are:

  • lcrv00file = ‘salt2_lc_relative_variance_0.dat’ (2-d grid)

  • lcrv11file = ‘salt2_lc_relative_variance_1.dat’ (2-d grid)

  • lcrv01file = ‘salt2_lc_relative_covariance_01.dat’ (2-d grid)

  • cdfile = ‘salt2_color_dispersion.dat’ (1-d grid)

Notes

The “2-d grid” files have the format <phase> <wavelength> <value> on each line.

The phase and wavelength values of the various components don’t necessarily need to match. (In the most recent salt2 model data, they do not all match.) The phase and wavelength values of the first model component (in m0file) are taken as the “native” sampling of the model, even though these values might require interpolation of the other model components.
