class LogarithmicSpiralField : public MagneticField

Galactic disk field model of axisymmetric (ASS) or bisymmetric (BSS) logarithmic spiral shape.

Public Functions

inline LogarithmicSpiralField(bool isBSS = true, double b0 = 1., double pitch = M_1_PI / 4., double rsol = 8.5 * kpc, double rc = 3 * kpc, double d = 5 * kpc, double z0 = 3 * kpc)


  • isBSS – switch for the magnetic field model true for BSS, false for ASS

  • b0 – magnetic field strength

  • pitch – pitch angle [rad]

  • rsol – distance of sun from Galactic center

  • rc – radius of central region with constant field

  • d – distance to first field reversal

  • z0 – vertical attenuation length
