slit smearing
Explore different integration schemes for slit smearing.
Slit smearing evaluates the following integral:
.. math::
I_s(q_o) = \int_0^{\Delta q_v} I(\sqrt{q_o^2 + u^2}) du
where $\Delta q_v$ is the vertical slit contribution. See
This program is not intended as an end user application, but rather as a
platform for exploring implementations of the resolution integral.
Different experiments can be performed by modifying the :func:`demo` function.
The integration functions have the name smear_METHOD, for a variety of
different methods. Each one takes a form factor with parameters, a set of
q values, a resolution, and maybe a set of q_calc values at which to evaluate
the theory function. The *ms* and *mt* variables in :func:`demo`, determine
which methods are being compared. :func:`interpolate` allows you to fill
in the integral between q points since the demo function is rapidly
oscillating. *TEST_DATA_SLIT_SMEAR* contains the values calculated in
Igor for a sphere model with a radius of 6 microns and a contrast of 3e-6
inverse Angstroms.
:func:`smear_romberg` is a direct implementation of the integral using
adaptive romberg integration from scipy. This method would add considerable
complexity to sasmodels since we could no longer rely on evaluating the
models at a fixed set of q points for all parameter sets in a fit. A
"good enough" method with fixed q, although less accurate and requiring
more q points on average to evaluate, will be a win in complexity and perhaps
performance. The romberg integration parameters are set to produce a
pretty good value for the integral.
The remaining methods used a fixed set of *q* points, *q_calc*, to evaluate the
integral. They are :func:`smear_simpsons`, :func:`smear_trapezoid`,
and :func:`smear_rectangular`. Except for :func:`smear_simpsons_pow`,
*q_calc* is extrapolated to the full width of the resolution function.
The extrapolation uses exponential spacing between the points, much like *q*
spacing within the measured data range, though :func:`smear_simpsons_lin`
uses linear spacing.
:func:`smear_rectangular` is implemented as a non-square weight matrix which
can be multiplied by a set of computed values *I(q_calc)* to produce
*I_smeared(q)*. The same style could be used for trapezoid and Simpson's
rule with the appropriate bookkeeping. This was not done because at least
for the demo problem, rectangular performed better than the other
non-adaptive methods, and so wins on both simplicity and accuracy.
:func:`smear_simpsons_pow` uses simpson's rule to estimate the integral within
the range of the data, and a power law approximation for the tail above the
maximum q value. This is akin to the Igor implementation of slit smearing,
though it uses the theory function itself to estimate the power law rather
than data.
The power law approximation has two problems:
1. the power is estimated from the data, which means that this will only
work if the data has a flat region at the tail, and
2. any features such as lamellar peaks that occur beyond the end of the
data will not be correctly modeled.
The demo shows that this method performs poorly for high q when oscillations
in the theory have not completely decayed by the end of the q range, which
is not really a surprise. It is not a problem in practice for usans data on
igor since polydispersity will likely dampen any ringing that a monodisperse
model might exhibit. The demo does not simulate a model containing a peak at
q beyond the end of the data.
At least for this theory function, the simple rectangular integral is as
good as the more complicated trapezoid and Simpson's rule integration.
Due to the oscillations in the theory function, the relative error is
huge (50%) at high q. Oversampling by a factor of 10 (requiring 1020
evaluations rather than 122), reduces the error to 2.5%. Another factor
of 10 (9130 evaluations) reduces error to 0.15%. Getting error down to
5e-5 requires about 90,000 evaluations.
In comparison, romberg integration requires only 1360 evaluations.

Instead it is approximated by a power law computed from the (I(delta_qv)) and
the final 25\% of the theory function. Igor fits the data to the a power
law and assumes that it will be an adequate estimate for the fitted
theory function.
