Axisymmetrized N-body snapshot potential¶
- class galpy.potential.SnapshotRZPotential(s, num_threads=None, nazimuths=4, ro=None, vo=None)¶
Class that implements an axisymmetrized version of the potential of an N-body snapshot (requires pynbody)
_evaluate, _Rforce, and _zforce calculate a hash for the array of points that is passed in by the user. The hash and corresponding potential/force arrays are stored – if a subsequent request matches a previously computed hash, the previous results are returned and not recalculated.
- __init__(s, num_threads=None, nazimuths=4, ro=None, vo=None)¶
Initialize a SnapshotRZ potential object
s (pynbody.snapshot) – A simulation snapshot loaded with pynbody.
num_threads (int, optional) – Number of threads to use for calculation. Default is None.
nazimuths (int, optional) – Number of azimuths to average over. Default is 4.
ro (float or Quantity, optional) – Distance scale for translation into internal units (default from configuration file).
vo (float or Quantity, optional) – Velocity scale for translation into internal units (default from configuration file).
