# Source code for beast.observationmodel.noisemodel.splinter

"""
splinter noise model assumes that every photometric band is independent
from the others and has a fractional flux uncertainty and no bias.
Method
------
Create a noise model that has sigmas that are frac_unc times sed_flux and
zeros for the bias terms.

Splinter noise model assumes that every filter is independent with

sed model grid for everyone of which we will evaluate the model
