Member Typedef Documentation

typedef Gyoto::SmartPointer<Gyoto::SmartPointee> Gyoto::SmartPointee::Subcontractor_t(Gyoto::FactoryMessenger *, std::vector< std::string > const &) [inherited]

A subcontractor builds an object upon order from the Factory.

Various classes need to provide a subcontractor to be able to instantiate themselves upon order from the Factory. A subcontractor is a function (often a static member function) which accepts a pointer to a FactoryMessenger as unique parameter, communicates with the Factory using this messenger to read an XML description of the object to build, and returns this objet. SmartPointee::Subcontractor_t* is just generic enough a typedef to cast to and from other subcontractor types: Astrobj::Subcontractor_t, Metric::Subcontractor_t, Spectrum::Subcontractor_t. A subcontractor needs to be registered using the relevant Register() function: Astrobj::Register(), Metric::Register(), Spectrum::Register().


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::Generic ( Worldline parent  ) 

Normal constructor.

Sets line_


Member Function Documentation

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::checkNorm ( double  coord[8]  )  [virtual]

Check norm.

Issue a warning using GYOTO_SEVERE if norm is drifting. nextStep() implementations should call it.

virtual Generic* Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::clone ( Worldline newparent  )  const [pure virtual]

Deep copy.

Derived classes must implement it

Implemented in Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Legacy, and Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Boost.

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::doStep ( double const   coordin[8],
double  step,
double  coordout[8] 
) [pure virtual]

Make one step of exactly this size.

doStep() is meant to refine a computation made using nextStep(). In particular, there is no checking for norm conservation.

Parameters:
[in] coordin current position-velocity;
[in] step exact step to use.
[out] coordout next position-velocity;

Implemented in Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Legacy, and Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Boost.

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::init (  )  [virtual]

Cache whatever needs to be cached.

This is called by all the methods in Worldline each time an member that could be cached in Worldline::state_ changes. Therefore, user code should normally not have to call it.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Boost.

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::init ( Worldline line,
const double *  coord,
const double  delta 
) [virtual]
Parameters:
line The Worldline that we are integrating. Sets: Worldline::line_, Worldline::gg_, Worldline::adaptive_.
coord Initial coordinate.
delta Integration step. Sign determines direction.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Legacy, and Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Boost.

virtual int Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Generic::nextStep ( double *  coord,
double  h1max = GYOTO_DEFAULT_DELTA_MAX 
) [pure virtual]

Make one step.

Parameters:
[out] coord Next position-velocity;
[in] h1max maximum step in case of adaptive integration

Implemented in Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Legacy, and Gyoto::Worldline::IntegState::Boost.

Taken from Worldline::line_, never updated.

Worldline that we are integrating.

Beware this is not a SmartPointer. Make sure line_ still exists when calling nestStep().

Initial norm of the 4-velocity.
