class PT11Field : public MagneticField

Implements Pshirkov2011 galactic magnetic field model.

Implements the Pshirkov2011 galactic magnetic field model, consisting of large-scale regular disk and halo fields. For the disk field an axisymmetric (ASS) and the bisymmetric (BSS, default) model can be chosen. For the halo field the BHM Halo field model (Sun et al. 2008) is considered.

Currently only best fit values of the field parameters are implemented. The field is defined in the usual galactocentric coordinate system with the Galactic center at the origin, the x-axis pointing in the opposite direction of the Sun, and the z-axis pointing towards Galactic north.
