class SourcePowerLawSpectrum : public SourceFeature

Particle energy following a power-law spectrum.

The power law is of the form: dN/dE ~ E^index, for energies in the interval [Emin, Emax].

Public Functions

SourcePowerLawSpectrum(double Emin, double Emax, double index)


  • Emin – minimum energy (in Joules)

  • Emax – maximum energy (in Joules)

  • index – spectral index of the power law
