View source: R/beamDiskOverlap.R

Calculate the overlap integral of a 2-D Gaussian beam and a uniform disk, including a shift between the centers of the beam and disk.

1 | ```
beamDiskOverlap(s = 0, r = 1, theta.fwhm = 1)
``` |

`s` |
Shift between centers |

`r` |
Disk radius |

`theta.fwhm` |
Gaussian beam FWHM |

Converts the 2-D integral to 1-D for speed. Use consistent units.

Value of the overlap integral, normalized to unity for a beam much smaller than the disk.
