This section describes yt’s symbolic unit capabilities. This is provided as quick introduction for those who are already familiar with yt but want to learn more about the unit system. Please see General Data Analysis and Visualizing Data for more detail about querying, analyzing, and visualizing data in yt.
Each subsection is a notebook. To open these notebooks in a “live” IPython session and execute the documentation interactively, you need to download the repository and start the IPython notebook.
You will then need to navigate to
$YT_HG/doc/source/units (where $YT_HG
is the location of a clone of the yt mercurial repository), and then start an
IPython notebook server:
$ ipython notebook
The pre-filled out notebooks are far less fun than running them yourself!
Here are the notebooks, which have been filled in for inspection:
Let us know if you would like to contribute other example notebooks, or have any suggestions for how these can be improved.
