as the back-end function to calculate the convolution.

weight = swobj.horace_sqw(qh,qk,ql,en,pars,swobj,pars,kwpars)


qh,qk,ql,en Arrays containing points at which to evaluate sqw from the broadened dispersion

pars Arguments needed by the function. - pars = [model_pars scale_factor resolution_pars] - Should be a vector of parameters - The first N parameters relate to the spin wave dispersion and correspond to spinW matrices in the order defined by the ‘mat’ option [N=numel(mat)] - The next M parameters relate to the convolution parameters corresponding to the convolution function defined by the ‘resfun’ option (either one or two parameters depending on function type. - The last parameter is a scale factor for the intensity If this is omitted, a scale factor of 1 is used;

kwpars - A series of ‘keywords’ and parameters. Specific to this function is:

          - 'resfun' - determines the convolution / resolution 
               function to get S(q,w). It can be either a string: 
                 'gauss' - gaussian with single fixed (fittable) FWHM
                 'lor' - lorentzian with single fixed (fittable) FWHM
                 'voigt' - pseudo-voigt with single fixed (fittable) FWHM
                 @fun - a function handle satisfying the requirements of
                        the 'fwhm' parameter of disp2sqw.
               NB. For 'gauss' and 'lor' only one fwhm parameter may be
               specified. For 'voigt', fwhm = [width lorz_frac]
               contains two parameters - the fwhm and lorentzian fraction  
               [default: 'gauss']
          - 'partrans' - a function to transform the fit parameters
               This transformation will be applied before each iteration
               and the transformed input parameter vector passed to
               spinW and the convolution function.
               [default: @(y)y  % identity operation]
          - 'coordtrans' - a matrix to transform the input coordinates
               (qh,qk,ql,en) before being sent to SpinW. 
               [default: eye(4) % identity]
          In addition, the following parameters are used by this function                         
               and will also be passed on to spinw.matparser which will
               do the actual modification of spinW model parameters:
          - 'mat' - A cell array of labels of spinW named 'matrix' or
               matrix elements. E.g. {'J1', 'J2', 'D(3,3)'}. These will
               be the model parameters to be varied in a fit, their
               order in this cell array will be the same as in the
               fit parameters vector.
               [default: [] % empty matrix - no model parameters] 
            All other parameters will be passed to spinW. See the help
               for spinw/spinwave, spinw/matparser and spinw/sw_neutron
               for more information.

swobj The spinwave object which defines the magnetic system to be calculated.
