class EllProfile[source]#

Bases: SphProfile

An elliptical profile, which describes the geometry of profiles defined by an ellipse.

The elliptical components (ell_comps) of this profile are used to define the axis_ratio (q) and angle (phi) :

Math

phi = (180/pi) * arctan2(e_y / e_x) / 2

Math

f = sqrt(e_y^2 + e_x^2)

Math

q = (1 - f) / (1 + f)

Where:

e_y = y elliptical component = ell_comps e_x = x elliptical component = ell_comps q = axis_ratio (major_axis / minor_axis)

This means that given an axis-ratio and angle the elliptical components can be computed as:

Math

f = (1 - q) / (1 + q)

Math

e_y = f * sin(2*phi)

Math

e_x = f * cos(2*phi)

For an input (y,x) grid of Cartesian coordinates this is used to compute the elliptical coordinates of a profile:

$\xi = q^{0.5} * ((y-y_c^2 + x-x_c^2 / q^2)^{0.5}$

Where:

y_c = profile y centre = centre x_c = profile x centre = centre

The majority of elliptical profiles use xi to compute their image.

Attributes

 angle The position angle in degrees of the major-axis of the ellipse defined by profile, defined counter clockwise from the positive x-axis (0.0 > angle > 180.0). angle_radians The position angle in radians of the major-axis of the ellipse defined by profile, defined counter clockwise from the positive x-axis (0.0 > angle > 2pi). axis_ratio The ratio of the minor-axis to major-axis (b/a) of the ellipse defined by profile (0.0 > q > 1.0).
property axis_ratio: float#

The ratio of the minor-axis to major-axis (b/a) of the ellipse defined by profile (0.0 > q > 1.0).

Return type

float

property angle: float#

The position angle in degrees of the major-axis of the ellipse defined by profile, defined counter clockwise from the positive x-axis (0.0 > angle > 180.0).

Return type

float

The position angle in radians of the major-axis of the ellipse defined by profile, defined counter clockwise from the positive x-axis (0.0 > angle > 2pi).

Return type

float

angle_to_profile_grid_from(grid_angles)[source]#

The angle between each angle theta on the grid and the profile, in radians.

Parameters

grid_angles – The angle theta counter-clockwise from the positive x-axis to each coordinate in radians.

rotated_grid_from_reference_frame_from(grid)[source]#

Rotate a grid of (y,x) coordinates which have been transformed to the elliptical reference frame of a profile back to the original unrotated coordinate grid reference frame.

Note that unlike the method transformed_from_reference_frame_grid_from the coordinates are not translated back to the profile’s original centre.

This routine is used after computing deflection angles in the reference frame of the profile, so that the deflection angles can be re-rotated to the frame of the original coordinates before performing ray-tracing.

Parameters

grid – The (y, x) coordinates in the reference frame of an elliptical profile.

Convert a grid of (y,x) coordinates to their elliptical radii values: :math: (x^2 + (y^2/q))^0.5

If the coordinates have not been transformed to the profile’s geometry (e.g. translated to the profile centre), this is performed automatically.

Parameters

grid (Union[ndarray, Grid2D, Grid2DIterate, Grid2DIrregular]) – The (y, x) coordinates in the reference frame of the elliptical profile.

Return type

ndarray

Convert a grid of (y,x) coordinates to an eccentric radius: :math: axis_ratio^0.5 (x^2 + (y^2/q))^0.5

This is used in certain light profiles define their half-light radii as a circular radius.

If the coordinates have not been transformed to the profile’s geometry (e.g. translated to the profile centre), this is performed automatically.

Parameters

grid (Union[ndarray, Grid2D, Grid2DIterate, Grid2DIrregular]) – The (y, x) coordinates in the reference frame of the elliptical profile.

Return type

ndarray

transformed_to_reference_frame_grid_from(grid)[source]#

Transform a grid of (y,x) coordinates to the reference frame of the profile.

This includes a translation to the profile’s centre and a rotation using its angle.

Parameters

grid (Union[ndarray, Grid2D, Grid2DIterate, Grid2DIrregular]) – The (y, x) coordinates in the original reference frame of the grid.

Return type

Grid2DTransformedNumpy

transformed_from_reference_frame_grid_from(grid)[source]#

Transform a grid of (y,x) coordinates from the reference frame of the profile to the original observer reference frame.

This includes a translation from the profile’s centre and a rotation using its angle.

Parameters

grid (Union[ndarray, Grid2D, Grid2DIterate, Grid2DIrregular]) – The (y, x) coordinates in the reference frame of the profile.

Return type

Union[ndarray, Grid2D, Grid2DIterate, Grid2DIrregular]
