galpy.potential.Potential.toVertical¶

Potential.
toVertical
(R, phi=None, t0=0.0)[source]¶ NAME:
toVerticalPURPOSE:
convert a 3D potential into a linear (vertical) potential at RINPUT:
R  Galactocentric radius at which to create the vertical potential (can be Quantity)
phi= (None) Galactocentric azimuth at which to create the vertical potential (can be Quantity); required for nonaxisymmetric potential
t0= (0.) time at which to create the vertical potential (can be Quantity)
OUTPUT:
linear (vertical) potential: Phi(z,phi,t) = Phi(R,z,phi,t)Phi(R,0.,phi0,t0) where phi0 and t0 are the phi and t inputsHISTORY
