(syst, density, relwidth=None, abswidth=None, n=9, mask=True)[source]¶Interpolate density in a system onto a regular grid.
The system sites together with a scalar for each site defines a “discrete” density field where the density is non-zero only at the site positions.
To make this vector field easier to visualize and interpret at different
length scales, it is smoothed by convoluting it with the bell-shaped bump
function f(r) = max(1 - (2*r / width)**2, 0)**2
. The bump width is
determined by the relwidth and abswidth parameters.
This routine samples the smoothed field on a regular (square or cubic) grid.
The system on which we are going to calculate the field.
Must contain the intensity on each site in the same order that they appear in syst.sites.
Relative width of the bumps used to smooth the field, as a fraction
of the length of the longest side of the bounding box. This argument
is only used if abswidth
is not given.
Absolute width of the bumps used to smooth the field. Takes
precedence over relwidth
. If neither is given, the bump width is set
to four times the length of the shortest hopping.
Number of points the grid must have over the width of the bump.
If True, this function returns a masked array that masks positions that are too far away from any sites. This is useful for showing an approximate outline of the system when the field is plotted.
