Classes

class nbodykit.source.mesh.catalog.CatalogMesh(source, Nmesh, BoxSize, Position, dtype='f4', resampler='cic', compensated=False, interlaced=False, Value=None, Selection=None, Weight=None, **kwargs)[source]

A mesh generated by resampling a Catalog with the given parameters.

The original CatalogSource object is stored as the base attribute.

Parameters:
  • source (CatalogSource) – the input catalog that we are viewing as a mesh
  • BoxSize – the size of the box
  • Nmesh (int, 3-vector) – the number of cells per mesh side
  • dtype (str) – the data type of the values stored on mesh
  • Weight (array_like, Column, None) – column that specifies the weight value for each particle in the source to use when gridding
  • Value (array_like, Column, None) – column that specifies the field value for each particle; the mesh stores a weighted average of this column
  • Selection (array_like, Column, None) – column that selects the subset of particles to grid to the mesh
  • Position (array_like, Column, None) – column in source specifying the position coordinates; default is Position
  • interlaced (bool, optional) – use the interlacing technique of Sefusatti et al. 2015 to reduce the effects of aliasing on Fourier space quantities computed from the mesh
  • compensated (bool, optional) – whether to correct for the window introduced by the grid interpolation scheme
  • window (str, optional) – the string specifying which window interpolation scheme to use; see pmesh.window.methods

‘Weight’, ‘Value’, ‘Selection’, ‘Position’ are items of the collection that can be reassigned after the creation of the object.

preview(axes=None, Nmesh=None, root=0)

Parameters:

Return type:RealField, ComplexField
to_real_field(out=None, normalize=True)[source]

This computes the following meta-data attributes in the process of painting, returned in the attrs attributes of the returned RealField object:

  • N : int
    the (unweighted) total number of objects painted to the mesh
  • W : float
    the weighted number of total objects, equal to the collective sum of the ‘weight’ column
  • shotnoise : float

  • num_per_cell : float
    the mean number of weighted objects per cell

Note

The density field on the mesh is normalized as \(1+\delta\), such that the collective mean of the field is unity.

See the documentation on painting for more details on painting catalogs to a mesh.

Returns:real – the painted real field; this has a attrs dict storing meta-data
