Likelihood analysis

Jim is maintaining a kind of diary of Likelihood Usage Notes that you should pay attention to. The updates for this week relate to likelihood analysis with diffuse sources. pyLikelihood can now provide fluxes, energy fluxes, and upper limits for diffuse sources. Also, the diffuse response calculation (gtdiffrsp) is now accurate for discrete diffuse sources defined via spatial templates. The user needs to take care to make the image size commensurate with the diffuse source. These updates are in Likelihood v14r3 and pyLikelihood v1r10p1 (not yet in a release).
