sunkit_image.radial.calculate_fit_radial_intensity(radii, polynomial)[source]

Calculates the fit value of the radial intensity at the values radii.

The function assumes that the polynomial is the best fit to the observed log of the intensity as a function of radius.

  • radii (astropy.units.Quantity) – The radii at which the fitted intensity is calculated, nominally in units of solar radii.

  • polynomial (numpy.ndarray) – A polynomial of degree “degree” that fits the log of the intensity profile as a function of the radius.


numpy.ndarray – An array with the same shape as radii which expresses the fitted intensity value.
