Halo callback object

class yt.analysis_modules.halo_analysis.halo_callbacks.HaloCallback(function, args=None, kwargs=None)[source]

Bases: object

A HaloCallback is a function that minimally takes in a Halo object and performs some analysis on it. This function may attach attributes to the Halo object, write out data, etc, but does not return anything.

Create a sphere data container to associate with a halo.

Parameters:
  • halo (Halo object) – The Halo object to be provided by the HaloCatalog.

  • fields (string or list of strings) – The fields to be loaded. If None, all fields present will be loaded. Default : None
  • filename (string) – The name of the file to be loaded. The final filename will be “<filename>_<id>.h5”. If None, filename is set to the value given by the storage keyword. Default: None
  • output_dir (string) – Name of directory where profile data will be read. The full path will be the output_dir of the halo catalog concatenated with this directory. Default : ”.”
yt.analysis_modules.halo_analysis.halo_callbacks.phase_plot(halo, output_dir='.', phase_args=None, phase_kwargs=None)[source]

Make a phase plot for the halo object.

Parameters:
  • halo (Halo object) – The Halo object to be provided by the HaloCatalog.
  • output_dir (string) – Name of directory where profile data will be written. The full path will be the output_dir of the halo catalog concatenated with this directory. Default : ”.”
  • phase_args (list) – List of arguments to be given to PhasePlot.
  • phase_kwargs (dict) – Dictionary of keyword arguments to be given to PhasePlot.
yt.analysis_modules.halo_analysis.halo_callbacks.profile(halo, bin_fields, profile_fields, n_bins=32, extrema=None, logs=None, units=None, weight_field='cell_mass', accumulation=False, fractional=False, storage='profiles', output_dir='.')[source]

Create 1, 2, or 3D profiles of a halo.

Store profile data in a dictionary associated with the halo object.

Parameters:
  • halo (Halo object) – The Halo object to be provided by the HaloCatalog.
  • bin_fields (list of strings) – The binning fields for the profile.
  • profile_fields (string or list of strings) – The fields to be profiled.
  • n_bins (int or list of ints) – The number of bins in each dimension. If None, 32 bins for each bin are used for each bin field. Default: 32.
  • extrema (dict of min, max tuples) – Minimum and maximum values of the bin_fields for the profiles. The keys correspond to the field names. Defaults to the extrema of the bin_fields of the dataset. If a units dict is provided, extrema are understood to be in the units specified in the dictionary.
  • logs (dict of boolean values) – Whether or not to log the bin_fields for the profiles. The keys correspond to the field names. Defaults to the take_log attribute of the field.
  • units (dict of strings) – The units of the fields in the profiles, including the bin_fields.
  • weight_field (string) – Weight field for profiling. Default : “cell_mass”
  • accumulation (bool or list of bools) – If True, the profile values for a bin n are the cumulative sum of all the values from bin 0 to n. If -True, the sum is reversed so that the value for bin n is the cumulative sum from bin N (total bins) to n. If the profile is 2D or 3D, a list of values can be given to control the summation in each dimension independently. Default: False.
  • fractional (If True the profile values are divided by the sum of all) – the profile data such that the profile represents a probability distribution function.
  • storage (string) – Name of the dictionary to store profiles. Default: “profiles”
