Code abstraction of objects (galaxies) in simulations.

Project description

Build Status Documentation Status

SWIFTGalaxy is a module that extends SWIFTSimIO tailored to analyses of particles belonging to individual simulated galaxies. It inherits from and extends the functionality of the SWIFTDataset. It understands the output of a halo finder (supported: Velociraptor, Caesar; planned support: SOAP) and therefore which particles belong to a galaxy, and its integrated properties. The particles occupy a coordinate frame that is enforced to be consistent, such that particles loaded on-the-fly will match e.g. rotations and translations of particles already in memory. Intuitive masking of particle datasets is also enabled. Finally, some utilities to make working in cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems more convenient are also provided.
