class PhotonField : public Referenced

Abstract base class for photon fields.

Subclassed by BlackbodyPhotonField, TabularPhotonField

Public Functions

inline PhotonField()
virtual double getPhotonDensity(double ePhoton, double z = 0.) const = 0

returns comoving photon density [1/m^3]. multiply with (1+z^3) for physical number density.

Parameters
  • ePhoton – photon energy [J]

  • z – redshift (if redshift dependent, default = 0.)

virtual double getMinimumPhotonEnergy(double z) const = 0
virtual double getMaximumPhotonEnergy(double z) const = 0
inline virtual std::string getFieldName() const
inline virtual double getRedshiftScaling(double z) const

returns overall comoving scaling factor (cf. CRPropa3-data/calc_scaling.py)

Parameters

z – redshift

inline bool hasRedshiftDependence() const
inline void setFieldName(std::string fieldName)
inline size_t addReference() const
inline size_t removeReference() const
inline int removeReferenceNoDelete() const
inline size_t getReferenceCount() const

Protected Attributes

std::string fieldName
bool isRedshiftDependent
mutable size_t _referenceCount
