In the following of this section we will describe the procedure followed by hyperz and the meaning of all the parameters involved in the computation.
To start, you simply have to type
Name of parameter file
[default = zphot.param]
After entering the name of your parameter file, or pushing ``return''
if the name corresponds to the default, the program will notify you the
status of input files, i.e. the number of SEDs you required, the number
of filters and of objects read from the catalogue and eventually it will
report error messages in case of problems reading some input file. For
Reading parameter file :
There are 5 synthetic spectra
There are 5 filters
There are 1000 objects in the catalogue
Reading reference sed:
ID: Kurucz's model for Alpha Lyrae. 9400K BB interpolation 1.8-200 microns
There are 3303 points in Vega
Reading synthetic spectra :
Type 1 : /home/mbolzone/ZPHOT/templates/Burst.ised
Type 2 : /home/mbolzone/ZPHOT/templates/E.ised
Type 3 : /home/mbolzone/ZPHOT/templates/Sa.ised
Type 4 : /home/mbolzone/ZPHOT/templates/Sc.ised
Type 5 : /home/mbolzone/ZPHOT/templates/Im.ised
Building hypercube ...
CPU time involved : 384.940002 seconds
I'm working ...
Total CPU time involved : 749.229996 seconds
The hypercube computation (see the next section) will take from some
seconds to some minutes, the CPU time depending on your template choice,
on the number of redshift and reddening steps, in addition to the clock
of your machine.
