# tkp.sourcefinder.gaussian – defines a two dimensional Gaussian function¶

Definition of a two dimensional elliptical Gaussian.

tkp.sourcefinder.gaussian.gaussian(height, center_x, center_y, semimajor, semiminor, theta)[source]

Return a 2D Gaussian function with the given parameters.

Parameters: height (float) – (z-)value of the 2D Gaussian center_x (float) – x center of the Gaussian center_y (float) – y center of the Gaussian semimajor (float) – major axis of the Gaussian semiminor (float) – minor axis of the Gaussian theta (float) – angle of the 2D Gaussian in radians, measured between the semi-major and y axes, in counterclockwise direction. 2D Gaussian (function)
