Fix SensitivityEstimator after IRF API change #1998

merged 10 commits into from Jan 23, 2019

@registerrier registerrier commented Jan 22, 2019

This PR is replacing the dependency of SensitivityEstimator on the old CTAPerf object. The EffectiveAreaTable (e.g. arf), the EnergyDispersion (e.g. rmf) are explicitly passed. The background model is passed as a CountsSpectrum for now. In the future, a SpectralBackgroundModel should be used instead once it is correctly implemented in the Datasets framework.
This should solve #1517 .

The modified cta_sensitivity notebook will come in another PR (to solve issue #1943 and #1824 ).

Thanks @registerrier for fixing this class, I've left a few in-line comments. API wise I'd prefer if the .run() just returned the table. There is no advantage in storing the result on the class, if it's not needed anymore. It also requires an extra line of code to get the result...

You removed the import statement here, but the rest of the example still uses CTAPerf. Either fix the example or remove it completely and link to the notebook instead? Both options are fine by me...

I removed the example. You can't show how this works in only 4 lines of code now.

Maybe take and instance of SpectrumModel instead? Or at least call it index? I think slope is nowhere used in Gammapy.

Well, only power laws are meaningful and the choice of normalisation units has an impact on the unit of the result. Since index is the only free parameter I just changed slope to index
