The DF of a two-dimensional, non-axisymmetric disk

class galpy.df.evolveddiskdf(initdf, pot, to=0.0)[source]

Class that represents a diskdf as initial DF + subsequent secular evolution

__init__(initdf, pot, to=0.0)[source]

Initialize the evolved disk distribution function.

  • initdf (galpy.df.df instance) – The distribution function at the start of the evolution (at to) (units are transferred).

  • pot (galpy.potential.Potential instance) – Potential to integrate orbits in.

  • to (float or Quantity, optional) – Initial time (time at which initdf is evaluated; orbits are integrated from current t back to to).
