Iterated Riesz Commutators: A Simple Proof of Boundedness
Line counts of strong H-like and He-like ions and Fe xxi lines were measured with the CORA single-purpose line fitting tool by Ness & Wichmann (2002).
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
The CORA program measures line counts from the raw spectrum, i.e., the instrumental background is not subtracted and the background spectrum is instead added to the iterated model spectrum.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
For Capella and AB Dor we measured RGS line counts with both CORA and XSPEC (convolving a δ -function profile with the line spread function) and we found consistent results within the 1σ errors.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
We tested the effects arising from different treatments of the instrumental line profiles by exporting the line profiles used for the XSPEC fits into CORA and found similar results compared to what we obtained using the analytical Lorentzian profile function, without any systematic trend.
