SPIRAL DISK SIMULATIONS illustrate HST/COS recovery of the velocity-delay structure of an AGN accretion disk with spiral density waves.

On each HST orbit, expose 660s with G130M and 1240s with G160M.

Repeat every dt=1 days for T=120 days.

True maps: emissivity , responsivity .

Synthetic data: Lya , CIV , HeII .

Spectra: 1st , avg,rms .

Sampled lightcurves: 1400A , Lya, CIV, HeII.

1-D MEMECHO maps Psi(tau): Chi2= 3 , 2 , 1 . iter .

2-D MEMECHO maps Psi(v,tau): map , fit , dat , (dat-fit), (dat-fit)/sig , iter .
