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::Astrobj::Blob::Blob (  ) 

Default constructor.

Create Blob object with undefined initial conditions. One needs to set the coordinate system, the metric, and the initial position and velocity before integrating the orbit. setInititialCondition() can be used for that.


Member Function Documentation

void Gyoto::Worldline::checkPhiTheta ( double  coord[8]  )  const [inherited]

Bring in [0,] and in [0,2].

checkPhiTheta() Modifies coord if the corrdinates are spherical-like so that coord[2]=theta is in [0,pi] and coord[3]=phi is in [0,2pi]. Important to use in all astrobj in spherical coordinates to prevent "z-axis problems".

virtual Blob* Gyoto::Astrobj::Blob::clone (  )  const [virtual]

Cloner.

This method must be implemented by the various Astrobj::Generic subclasses in order to support cloning:

 SmartPointer<Astrobj> deep_copy = original->clone();

Cloning is necessary for multi-threading, recommended for interaction with the Yorick plug-in etc.

Implementing it is very straightforward, as long as the copy constructor Generic(const Generic& ) has been implemented:

 MyAstrobj* MyAstrobj::clone() const { return new MyAstrobj(*this); }

Reimplemented from Gyoto::Astrobj::Star.

void Gyoto::Worldline::delta ( const double  delta  )  [inherited]

Expand memory slots for polarization vectors.

Assignment to another Worldline Set delta_

double Gyoto::Astrobj::Standard::deltaInObj (  )  const [inherited]

Get Generic::delta_inobj_.

Get the constant integration step inside the astrobj

Returns:
delta_inobj_ in geometrical units
void Gyoto::Worldline::deltaMax ( double  h1  )  [inherited]

Set delta_max_

virtual double Gyoto::Worldline::deltaMax ( double const   pos[8],
double  delta_max_external 
) const [virtual, inherited]

Get delta max at a given position

Parameters:
[in] pos 4-position
[in] delta_max_external external constraint on delta_max
Returns:
the smallest value between delta_max_, delta_max_external, and R*delta_max_over_r_ where R is pos[1] in spherical coordinates and max(x1, x2, x3) in Cartesian coordinates.
virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::deltaMax ( double  coord[8]  )  [virtual, inherited]

Get max step constraint for adaptive integration.

Parameters:
[in] coord position
Returns:
max step to find this object reliably

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex.

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::UniformSphere::deltaMax ( double *  coord  )  [virtual, inherited]
Parameters:
[in] coord current photon position
Returns:
max( dltmor_*radius_, dltmod_*operator()(double coord[]) )
std::string Gyoto::Object::describeProperty ( Gyoto::Property const &  p  )  const [inherited]

Format desrciption for a property.

Returns a string containing the name(s) and type of the property, as well as whether it supports unit.

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::eAllocate (  )  [protected, virtual, inherited]

Allocate ep0_ ... et3_.

Allocate memory for polarization vectors

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::eDeallocate (  )  [protected, virtual, inherited]

Deallocate ep0_ ... et3_.

Deallocate memory for polarization vectors

virtual void Gyoto::Worldline::eExpand ( int  dir  )  [protected, virtual, inherited]

Call xExpand(double * &x, int dir) on ep0_, ep1_ etc.

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::emission ( double  Inu[],
double const   nu_em[],
size_t  nbnu,
double  dsem,
state_t const &  coord_ph,
double const   coord_obj[8] = NULL 
) const [virtual, inherited]

Specific intensity I for several values of em.

Called by the default implementation for processHitQuantities().

emission() computes the intensity I emitted by the small volume of length dsem. It should take self-absorption along dsem into account.

Same as emission(double nu_em, double dsem, double coord_ph[8], double coord_obj[8]=NULL) const looping on several values of nu_em.

Parameters:
Inu[nbnu] Output (must be set to a previously allocated array of doubles)
nu_em[nbnu] Frequencies at emission
nbnu Size of Inu[] and nu_em[]
dsem Length over which to integrate inside the object
coord_ph Photon coordinate
coord_obj Emitter coordinate at current photon position
Returns:
I or dI [W m-2 sr-2]

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::Standard, and Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::ThinDisk.

virtual void Gyoto::Object::fillElement ( Gyoto::FactoryMessenger fmp  )  const [virtual, inherited]

Fill the XML element for this Object.

The base implementation simply calls fillProperty() for each Property defined for the Object.

Derived classes should avoid overriding fillElement(). It may make sense occasionally, e.g. to make sure that the metric is output first.

To customize how a given Property is rendered, it is better to override fillProperty().

If this method is overridden, the implementation should in general call fillElement() on the direct base.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex, Gyoto::Spectrometer::Complex, and Gyoto::Scenery.

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Star::fillProperty ( Gyoto::FactoryMessenger fmp,
Property const &  p 
) const [virtual, inherited]

Output a single Property to XML.

The base implementation decides what to do based on the p.type. The format matches how setParameters() an setParameter() would interpret the XML descition.

Overriding this method should be avoided, but makes sense in some cases (for instance Screen::fillProperty() selects a different unit for Distance based on its magnitude, so that stellar sizes are expressed in solar radii while smaller sizes can be expressed in meters and larger sizes in parsecs).

Overriding implementation should fall-back on calling the implementation in the direct parent class:

 class A: public Object {};
 class B: public A { 
  using B::setParameter;
  virtual void fillProperty(Gyoto::FactoryMessenger *fmp,

) [inherited]

Get 8-coordinates for specific dates.

The coordinates will be computed using the integrator, so they will be as accurate as possible. Some heuristics are used to speed up the process and it is presumably faster to call this routine with a sorted list of dates. The line will be integrated further as required. An error will be thrown if it is not possible to reach a certain date.

Parameters:
[in] dates the list of dates for which the coordinates are to be computed in proper time or affine parameter if proper is true or in coordinate time if proper is false (default);
[in] n_dates the number of dates to compute ;
[out] x1dest,x2dest,x3dest,x0dot,x1dot,x2dot,x3dot arrays in which to store the result. These pointer may be set to NULL to retrieve only part of the information. They must be pre-allocated.
[out] ephi0,ephi1,ephi2,ephi3,etheta0,etheta1,etheta2,etheta3 arrays in which to store the ephi and etheta (parallel transport case). These pointer may be set to NULL to retrieve only part of the information. They must be pre-allocated.
[out] otime array in which to store the other time: coordinate time if proper, else proper time or affine parameter.
[in] proper bool: whether dates is proper time (or affine parameter) or coordinate time.
void Gyoto::Worldline::getCoord ( double  date,

void Gyoto::Worldline::getCoord ( size_t  index,
Gyoto::state_t &  dest 
) [inherited]

Get coordinates+base vectors corresponding to index.

We need this non-const implementation to allow the const, size_t and the non-const, double implementations to coexist.

void Gyoto::Worldline::getCoord ( size_t  index,
Gyoto::state_t &  dest 
) const [inherited]

Get coordinates+base vectors corresponding to index.

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Star::getMass (  )  const [virtual, inherited]

The mass of a Star is always 1. Stars do not perturb the metric. The only relevant point is that Stars are massive particules, their exact mass is of no importance.

Implements Gyoto::Worldline.

virtual Property const* Gyoto::Astrobj::Blob::getProperties (  )  const [virtual]

This method is declared automatically by the GYOTO_OBJECT macro and defined automatically by the GYOTO_PROPERTY_END macro.

void Gyoto::Object::help (  )  const [inherited]

Print (to stdout) some help on this class.

Describe all properties that this instance supports.

virtual int Gyoto::Astrobj::Standard::Impact ( Gyoto::Photon ph,
size_t  index,
Astrobj::Properties data = NULL 
) [virtual, inherited]

Does a photon at these coordinates impact the object?

Impact() checks whether a Photon impacts the object between two integration steps of the photon's trajectory (those two steps are photon->getCoord(index, coord1) and photon->getCoord(index+1, coord2)). Impact returns 1 if the photon impacts the object between these two steps, else 0. In many cases of geometrically thick obects, the implementation Astrobj::Standard::Impact() will be fine.

Impact will call Generic::processHitQuantities() (which is virtual and may be re-implemented) to compute observable properties on demand: if the data pointer is non-NULL, the object will look in it for pointers to properties which apply to its kind. If a pointer to a property known to this object is present, then the property is computed and store at the pointed-to address. For instance, all objects know the "intensity" property. If data->intensity != NULL, the instensity is computed and stored in *data->intensity.

If data is non-NULL and only in this case, processHitQuantities() will also call ph->transmit() to update the transmissions of the Photon (see Photon::transmit(size_t, double)). This must not be done if data is NULL (see Astrobj::Complex::Impact() for an explanation).

Impact() may not extend the ph Worldline. The only two dates that are guaranteed to be defined are at indices index and index+1.

Parameters:
ph Gyoto::Photon aimed at the object;
index Index of the last photon step;
data Pointer to a structure to hold the observables at impact.
Returns:
1 if impact, 0 if not.

Implements Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic.

state_t const &  c_ph,
double const   c_obj[8] = NULL 
) const [virtual, inherited]

12 I d (or j)

Compute the integral of emission() from 1 to 2. The default implementation is a numerical integrator which works well enough and is reasonably fast if emission() is a smooth function (i.e. no emission or absorption lines). If possible, it is wise to implement an analytical solution. It is used by processHitQuantities to compute the "BinSpectrum" quantity which is the most physical: it is the only quantity that can be actually measured directly by a real-life instrument.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Torus, Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::Standard, and Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::ThinDisk.

void Gyoto::Worldline::integrator ( std::string const &  type  )  [inherited]

Parameters:
[in] type Either "Legacy" or (if GYOTO_HAVE_BOOST_INTEGRATORS) one of "runge_kutta_cash_karp54", "runge_kutta_fehlberg78", "runge_kutta_dopri5", "runge_kutta_cash_karp54_classic"
virtual bool Gyoto::Object::isThreadSafe (  )  const [virtual, inherited]

Whether this class is thread-safe.

Return True if this object is thread-safe, i.e. if an instance and its clone can be used in parallel threads (in the context of Scenery::raytrace()). Known objects which are not thread-safe include Lorene metrics and everything from the Python plug-in.

The default implementation considers that the class itself is thread safe and recurses into the declared properties to check whether they are safe too. Classes that abide to the Object/Property paradigm and are themselves thread-safe have nothing special to do.

Objects that clone children in their copy constructor that are not declared as properties must take these children into account.

Classes that are never thread-safe must declare it. It acn be easily done using GYOTO_OBJECT_THREAD_SAFETY in the class declaration and GYOTO_PROPERTY_THREAD_UNSAFE in the class definition.

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::UniformSphere::operator() ( double const   coord[4]  )  [virtual, inherited]

Set whether the object is optically thin.

Set flag indicating that radiative transfer should be integrated, i.e. the object is to be considered optically thin.

Parameters:

state_t const &  coord_ph_hit,
double const *  coord_obj_hit,
double  dt,
Astrobj::Properties data 
) const [virtual, inherited]

Fills Astrobj::Properties.

processHitQuantities fills the requested data in Impact. To use it, you need to call it in the Impact() method for your object in case of hit. It will fill Redshift, Intensity, Spectrum, BinSpectrum and update the Photon's transmission by calling Photon::transmit(), only if data==NULL.

You can overload it for your Astrobj. The generic implementation calls emission(), integrateEmission() and transmission() below.

 Gyoto::Astrobj::MyKind::Subcontractor(FactoryMessenger* fmp) {
   SmartPointer<MyKind> ao = new MyKind();
   ao -> setParameters(fmp);

Member Data Documentation

double Gyoto::Worldline::abstol_ [protected, inherited]

Absolute tolerance of the integrator.

Used by the adaptive integrators implemented in IntegState::Boost. Refer to the boost::numeric::odeint documentation for more details.

double Gyoto::Worldline::delta_ [protected, inherited]

Initial integrating step.

Default: GYOTO_DEFAULT_DELTA

double Gyoto::Worldline::delta_max_ [protected, inherited]

Maximum integration step for the adaptive integrator.

The default (GYOTO_DEFAULT_DELTA_MAX) is usually fine.

For IntegState::Legacy, set it in the Metric instead!

double Gyoto::Worldline::delta_max_over_r_ [protected, inherited]

Numerical tuning parameter.

For IntegState::Legacy, set it in the Metric instead!

Ensure that delta (the numerical integration step) is never larger than a fraction of the distance between the current location and the center of the coordinate system.

The default (GYOTO_DEFAULT_DELTA_MAX_OVER_R) is usually fine.

double Gyoto::Worldline::delta_min_ [protected, inherited]

Minimum integration step for the adaptive integrator.

The default (GYOTO_DEFAULT_DELTA_MIN) is usually fine.

For IntegState::Legacy, set it in the Metric instead!

double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::deltamaxinsidermax_ [protected, inherited]

Maximum Photon integration step inside rmax_ [geometrical units].

Maximum step for Photon integation when inside the sphere of radius rmax_.

deltamaxinsidermax_ is in geometrical units.

std::string Gyoto::Object::kind_ [protected, inherited]

The "kind" that is output in the XML entity.

E.g. for an Astrobj, fillElement() will ensure

   <Astrobj kind="kind_" ...>...</Astrobj>

is written.

bool Gyoto::Worldline::parallel_transport_ [protected, inherited]

Whether to parallel transport a local triad.

Typically used to trace the base in which the Stokes parameters are expressed in the context of polarization.

std::vector<std::string> Gyoto::Object::plugins_ [protected, inherited]

The plug-ins that needs to be loaded to access this instance's class.

GYOTO_OBJECT Property const Gyoto::Astrobj::Blob::properties[] [static]

Property list.

This static member is declared automatically by the GYOTO_OBJECT macro and defined automatically by the GYOTO_PROPERTY_START, GYOTO_PROPERTY_END and GYOTO_PROPERTY_* macros.

The list of properties is implemented as a static array of Property instances. The last item in a Property of type Property::empty_t, which evaluates to false, so the list can be considered to be NULL-terminated (it is actually rather false-terminated). This empty_t last item can be a link to another Property list: for instance, the last item in Gyoto::Astrobj::Standard::properties is a link to Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::properties.

Reimplemented from Gyoto::Astrobj::Star.

double Gyoto::Worldline::reltol_ [protected, inherited]
