Detailed Description

Base class for astronomical object.

See introduction in the Gyoto::Astrobj namespace.

Member Typedef Documentation

◆ Subcontractor_t

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().

pure virtual

◆ deltaMax()

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::deltaMax ( double  coord[8])
virtual

Get max step constraint for adaptive integration.

Parameters
[in]coordposition
Returns

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex.

◆ describeProperty()

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.

◆ emission() [1/2]

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

Specific intensity Iν

Called by the default implementation for processHitQuantities().

emission() computes the intensity Iν emitted by the small volume of length dsem, in the emitter's frame. It should take self-absorption along dsem into account.

Reminder :

  • intensity = Iν [J m^-2 s^-1 ster^-1 Hz^-1];
  • invariant intensity = Iν3, which has the same value in any frame;
  • emission coefficient = jν [J m^-3 s^-1 ster^-1 Hz^-1] , defined by dIν = jν*ds, where ds is the distance travelled by the photon inside the object;
  • invariant emission coef = jν2, which has the same value in any frame.

The equation used for radiative transfer (without absorption) is:

d(Iν3)/dλ = (jν2) [*]

where λ is the integration parameter along the null geodesic.

NB: Let us consider a particular observer, with ν being the frequency measured by this observer, and ds being the proper distance (as measured by the observer) that the photon travels as it moves from λ to λ+dλ along its geodesic. Then it can be shown that:

dλ = ds/ν

This shows that Eq. [*] is homogeneous.

The default implementation returns 1. if optically thick and dsem if optically thin. It allows for a quick implementation of your object for visualization purposes.

Parameters
nu_emFrequency at emission [Hz]
dsemlength over which to integrate inside the object [geometrical units]
coord_phPhoton coordinate
coord_objEmitter coordinate at current photon position

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::ThinDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::Standard, Gyoto::Astrobj::PatternDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::UniformSphere, Gyoto::Astrobj::XillverReflection, Gyoto::Astrobj::DirectionalDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::Torus, Gyoto::Astrobj::NeutronStarModelAtmosphere, Gyoto::Astrobj::DynamicalDisk3D, Gyoto::Astrobj::PageThorneDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::InflateStar, Gyoto::Astrobj::DynamicalDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::PatternDiskBB, Gyoto::Astrobj::ThinDiskPL, Gyoto::Astrobj::EquatorialHotSpot, Gyoto::Astrobj::DynamicalDiskBolometric, Gyoto::Astrobj::NeutronStarAnalyticEmission, and Gyoto::Astrobj::ThinDiskIronLine.

◆ emission() [2/2]

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

Specific intensity Iν for several values of νem

Called by the default implementation for processHitQuantities().

emission() computes the intensity Iν 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
nbnuSize of Inu[] and nu_em[]
dsemLength over which to integrate inside the object
coord_phPhoton coordinate
coord_objEmitter coordinate at current photon position
Returns
Iν or dIν [W m-2 sr-2]

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

◆ fillElement()

virtual void Gyoto::Object::fillElement ( Gyoto::FactoryMessenger fmp) const
virtualinherited

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::Scenery, Gyoto::Spectrometer::Complex, Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex, and Gyoto::Metric::Complex.

◆ fillProperty()

virtual void Gyoto::Object::fillProperty ( Gyoto::FactoryMessenger fmp,
Property const &  p 
) const
virtualinherited

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;
Property const &p) const ;
};
void B::fillProperty(Gyoto::FactoryMessenger *fmp,
Property const &p) const {
if (name=="Duff") fmp->doSomething();
else A::fillProperty(fmp, p);
}

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Screen, Gyoto::Scenery, Gyoto::Astrobj::Star, Gyoto::Spectrometer::Uniform, Gyoto::Astrobj::PolishDoughnut, Gyoto::Astrobj::Disk3D, Gyoto::Astrobj::PatternDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::DirectionalDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::EquatorialHotSpot, Gyoto::Astrobj::XillverReflection, Gyoto::Metric::Shift, and Gyoto::Astrobj::NeutronStarModelAtmosphere.

◆ getDefaultQuantities()

virtual Gyoto::Quantity_t Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::getDefaultQuantities ( )
virtual

Which quantities to compute if know was requested.

Return a Gyoto::Quantity_t suitable as input to Gyoto::Scenery::setRequestedQuantities() to set de default quantities to compute for this object. The default of these defaults GYOTO_QUANTITY_INTENSITY.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::PageThorneDisk.

◆ getProperties()

virtual Property const* Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::getProperties ( ) const
virtual

◆ help()

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

Print (to stdout) some help on this class.

Describe all properties that this instance supports.

◆ Impact()

virtual int Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::Impact ( Gyoto::Photon ph,
size_t  index,
Astrobj::Properties data = NULL 
)
pure virtual

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
phGyoto::Photon aimed at the object;
indexIndex of the last photon step;
dataPointer to a structure to hold the observables at impact.
Returns
1 if impact, 0 if not.

Implemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Disk3D, Gyoto::Astrobj::PolishDoughnut, Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex, Gyoto::Astrobj::ThinDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::Standard, and Gyoto::Astrobj::InflateStar.

◆ integrateEmission() [1/2]

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::integrateEmission ( double  nu1,
double  nu2,
double  dsem,
state_t const &  c_ph,
double const  c_obj[8] = NULL 
) const
virtual

ν1ν2 Iν dν (or jν)

Compute the integral of emission() from ν1 to ν2. 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::Python::ThinDisk, Gyoto::Astrobj::Python::Standard, and Gyoto::Astrobj::Torus.

◆ integrateEmission() [2/2]

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::integrateEmission ( double *  I,
double const *  boundaries,
size_t const *  chaninds,
size_t  nbnu,
double  dsem,
state_t const &  cph,
double const *  co 
) const
virtual

ν1ν2 Iν dν (or jν)

Like double integrateEmission(double nu1, double nu2, double dsem, double c_ph[8], double c_obj[8]) const for each Spectrometer channel.

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

◆ isThreadSafe()

virtual bool Gyoto::Object::isThreadSafe ( ) const
virtualinherited

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.

◆ opticallyThin() [1/2]

void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::opticallyThin ( bool  flag)

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
flag1 if optically thin, 0 if optically thick.

◆ opticallyThin() [2/2]

bool Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::opticallyThin ( ) const

Query whether object is optically thin.

See opticallyThin(bool flag).

◆ processHitQuantities()

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::processHitQuantities ( Photon ph,
state_t const &  coord_ph_hit,
double const *  coord_obj_hit,
double  dt,
Astrobj::Properties data 
) const
virtual

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.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::PageThorneDisk, and Gyoto::Astrobj::DynamicalDiskBolometric.

◆ property()

Property const* Gyoto::Object::property ( std::string const  pname) const
inherited

Find property by name.

Look into the Property list for a Property whose name (or name_false, for a boolean Property) is pname. Return a const pointer to the first such property found, or NULL if none is found.

◆ rMax() [1/4]

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::rMax ( )
virtual

Get maximal distance from center of coordinate system.

Get maximal distance from center of coordinate system at which a Photon may hit the object.

Child classes may use the rmax_ member to cache this value, if its current value is DBL_MAX.

It can also be set using rMax().

Returns
rmax_ in geometrical units

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Star, Gyoto::Astrobj::Torus, Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex, and Gyoto::Astrobj::FixedStar.

◆ rMax() [2/4]

Parameters
unitstring
Returns
double rmax converted to unit

◆ rMax() [3/4]

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::rMax ( double  val)
virtual

Set maximal distance from center of coordinate system.

Set maximal distance from center of coordinate system at which a Photon may hit the object.

Parameters
valnew rmax_ in geometrical units.

◆ rMax() [4/4]

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::rMax ( double  val,
std::string const &  unit 
)
virtual

Set maximal distance from center of coordinate system.

Call Generic::rMax(double val) after converting val from unit to geometrical units.

Parameters
valrmax_ expressed in unit "unit";
unitstring...

◆ setParameter() [1/2]

virtual int Gyoto::Object::setParameter ( std::string  name,
std::string  content,
std::string  unit 
)
virtualinherited

Set parameter by name.

This function is used when parsing an XML description, if no Property of this name is found. Overriding implementation should fall-back on calling the direct's parent implementation:

class A: public Object {};
class B: public A {
using B::setParameter;
virtual int setParameter(std::string name,
std::string content,
std::string unit);
};
int B::setParameter(std::string name,
std::string content,
std::string unit) {
if (name=="Duff") doSomething(content, unit);
else return A::setParameter(name, content, unit);
return 0; // name was known
}
Parameters
nameXML name of the parameter (XML entity). This may have a path component, e.g. "Astrobj::Radius", in which case a property named "Astrobj" will be sought in the current object, and setParameter will be called recusrively on this Astrobj with Radius as name.
contentstring representation of the value
unitstring representation of the unit
Returns
0 if this parameter is known, 1 if it is not.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Star, Gyoto::Metric::RotStar3_1, Gyoto::Metric::KerrKS, and Gyoto::Astrobj::EquatorialHotSpot.

◆ setParameter() [2/2]

virtual void Gyoto::Object::setParameter ( Gyoto::Property const &  p,
std::string const &  name,
std::string const &  content,
std::string const &  unit 
)
virtualinherited

Set parameter by Property (and name)

This function is used when parsing an XML description, if Property (p) of this name is found (i.e. either p.name or p.name_false is equal to name). Implementation should fall-back on calling the direct's parent implementation:

class A: public Object {};
class B: public A {
using B::setParameter;
virtual void setParameter(Gyoto::Property const &p,
std::string name,
std::string content,
std::string unit);
};
void B::setParameter(Gyoto::Property const &p,
std::string name,
std::string content,
std::string unit) {
if (name=="Duff") doSomething(content, unit);
else A::setParameter(p, name, content, unit);
}
Parameters
pProperty that matches name (p.name == name or p.name_false == name)
nameXML name of the parameter (XML entity)
contentstring representation of the value
unitstring representation of the unit

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::PolishDoughnut.

◆ setParameters()

virtual void Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::setParameters ( FactoryMessenger fmp)
virtual

Main loop in Subcontractor_t function.

The Subcontractor_t function for each Astrobj kind should look somewhat like this (templated as Gyoto::Astrobj::Subcontractor<MyKind>):

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

Each object kind should implement setParameter(string name, string content, string unit) to interpret the individual XML elements. setParameters() can be overloaded in case the specific Astrobj class needs low level access to the FactoryMessenger. See UniformSphere::setParameters().

Reimplemented from Gyoto::Object.

Reimplemented in Gyoto::Astrobj::Star, Gyoto::Astrobj::Complex, Gyoto::Astrobj::OscilTorus, and Gyoto::Astrobj::EquatorialHotSpot.

◆ transmission()

virtual double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::transmission ( double  nuem,
double  dsem,
state_t const &  coord_ph,
double const  coord_obj[8] 
) const
virtual

Transmission: exp( αν * dsem )

transmission() computes the transmission of this fluid element or 0 if optically thick. The default implementation returns 1. (no attenuation) if optically thin, 0. if optically thick.

Parameters
nuemfrequency in the fluid's frame

double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::deltamaxinsidermax_
protected

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.

◆ kind_

std::string Gyoto::Object::kind_
protectedinherited

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

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

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

is written.

◆ plugins_

std::vector<std::string> Gyoto::Object::plugins_
protectedinherited

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

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

<Astrobj ... plugin="plugins_">...</Astrobj>

is written.

◆ rmax_

double Gyoto::Astrobj::Generic::rmax_
protected

Maximum distance to the center of the coordinate system [geometrical units].

Maximum distance from the center of the coordinate system at which a photon may hit the object. Child classes may compute a decent value for rmax_ at any time if rmax_ is DBL_MAX. External classes (Photons in particular) must use rMax() to access this information.

rmax_ is in geometrical units.
