BBEST Bayesian Estimation of Incoherent Neutron Scattering Backgrounds

We implemented a Bayesian-statistics approach for subtraction of incoherent scattering from neutron total-scattering data. In this approach, the estimated background signal associated with incoherent scattering maximizes the posterior probability, which combines the likelihood of this signal in reciprocal and real spaces with the prior that favors smooth lines.
