Build, access, and explore a NEPC database.
The goals of the nepc project are to provide tools to:
- parse, evaluate, and populate metadata for electron scattering cross sections;
- build a NEPC MySQL database of cross sections;
- curate, access, visualize, and use cross section data from a NEPC database; and
- support verification and validation of electron scattering cross section data.
The database schema and Python module are designed for anyone interested in plasma chemistry with a background in physics at the graduate level.
Documentation for the nepc project: https://nepc.readthedocs.io.
The project is organized in the following directories:
- tests - unit and integration testing
- tests/data - data directory for the
nepc_testdatabase--an example NEPC database containing fictitious electron scattering cross section data used in unit and integration testing
- tests/data/eda - example exploratory data analysis (EDA) of a NEPC database that is possible with the nepc Python module
- tests/data/methods - code used to parse fictitious cross section data in LXCat format and create various NEPC
Models for the
- docs - files used by Sphinx to generate the NEPC documentation
- nepc - the Python code for the nepc package and building a NEPC database
- nepc/mysql - the Python code for creating a NEPC database from data in
$NEPC_DATA_HOME; also creates the
nepc_testdatabase from data in
nepc with pip, run:
$ pip install nepc
Establish a connection to the database named
nepc running on a
production server (you must set an environment variable
points to the production server):
>>> cnx, cursor = nepc.connect()
If you've built the
nepc_test database on your local machine
(see instructions here), establish a connection to it:
>>> cnx, cursor = nepc.connect(local=True, test=True)
Access the pre-defined plasma chemistry model,
fict_min2, in the
>>> fict_min2 = nepc.Model(cursor, "fict_min2")
Print a summary of the
fict_min2 model, including a stylized Pandas dataframe:
Plot the cross sections in
>>> fict_min2.plot(ylog=True, xlog=True, width=8, height=4)
Additional examples of EDA using nepc are in
tests/data/eda. Examples of methods for
building data files for the
nepc_test database, including parsing
LXCat formatted data,
Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited.
