class Ktable(*filename_filters, filename=None, xtable=None, path=None, p_unit='unspecified', file_p_unit='unspecified', kdata_unit='unspecified', file_kdata_unit='unspecified', remove_zeros=False, search_path=None, mol=None, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: exo_k.ktable_io.Ktable_io

A class that handles 4D tables of k-coefficients.

Based on the Data_table class that handles basic operations common to Xtable.

Based on the Ktable_io class that incorporates all io routines (read/write_xxx for all the xxx supported formats).

Initializes k coeff table and supporting data from various sources (see below by order of precedence)

Parameters
  • filename (str, optional) – Relative or absolute name of the file to be loaded.

  • filename_filters (sequence of string) – As many strings as necessary to uniquely define a file in the global search path defined in Settings. This path will be searched for a file with all the filename_filters in the name. The filename_filters can contain ‘*’.

  • xtable (Xtable object) – If no filename nor filename_filters are provided, this xtable object will be used to create a ktable. In this case, wavenumber bins must be given with the wnedges keyword.

  • path (str) – If none of the above is specifed, path can point to a directory with a LMDZ type k coeff table. In this case, see read_LMDZ for the keywords to specify.

If none of the parameters above is specified, just creates an empty object to be filled later.

Other Parameters
  • p_unit (str, optional) – String identifying the pressure units to convert to (e.g. ‘bar’, ‘Pa’, ‘mbar’, or any pressure unit recognized by the astropy.units library). If =’unspecified’, no conversion is done.

  • file_p_unit (str, optional) – String to specify the current pressure unit if it is unspecified or if you have reasons to believe it is wrong (e.g. you just read a file where you know that the pressure grid and the pressure unit do not correspond)

  • kdata_unit (str, optional) – String to identify the unit to convert to. Accepts ‘cm^2’, ‘m^2’ or any surface unit recognized by the astropy.units library. If =’unspecified’, no conversion is done. In general, kdata should be kept in ‘per number’ or ‘per volume’ units (as opposed to ‘per mass’ units) as composition will always be assumed to be a number or volume mixing ratio. Opacities per unit mass are not supported yet. Note that you do not need to specify the ‘/molec’ or ‘/molecule’ in the unit.

  • file_kdata_unit (str, optional) – String to specify the current kdata unit if it is unspecified or if you have reasons to believe it is wrong (e.g. you just read a file where you know that the kdata grid and the kdata unit do not correspond)

  • remove_zeros (boolean, optional) – If True, the zeros in the kdata table are replaced by a value 10 orders of magnitude smaller than the smallest positive value

  • mol (str, optional) – The name of the gas or molecule described by the Ktable

  • search_path (str, optional) – If search_path is provided, it locally overrides the global _search_path in Settings and only files in search_path are returned.

property shape(self)

Returns the shape of self.kdata

xtable_to_ktable(self, xtable=None, wnedges=None, weights=None, ggrid=None, quad='legendre', order=20, g_split=0.9, mid_dw=True, write=0, remove_zeros=False)[source]

Fills the Ktable object with a k-coeff table computed from a Xtable object (inplace).

The p and kcorr units are inherited from the Xtable object.

Parameters
  • xtable (Xtable) – input Xtable object instance

  • wnedges (Array) – edges of the wavenumber bins to be used to compute the corrk

Other Parameters
  • weights (array, optional) – If weights are provided, they are used instead of the legendre quadrature.

  • quad (string, optional) – Type of quadrature used. Default is ‘legendre’. Also available: ‘split-legendre’ which uses half quadrature points between 0. and g_split and half between g_split and 1.

  • order (Integer, optional) – Order of the Gauss legendre quadrature used. Default is 20.

  • g_split (float, optional) – Used only if quad=’split-legendre’. See above.

  • mid_dw (boolean, optional) –

    • If True, the Xsec values in the high resolution xtable data are assumed to cover a spectral interval that is centered around the corresponding wavenumber value. The first and last Xsec values are discarded.

    • If False, each interval runs from the wavenumber value to the next one. The last Xsec value is dicarded.

hires_to_ktable(self, path=None, filename_grid=None, logpgrid=None, tgrid=None, wnedges=None, quad='legendre', order=20, g_split=0.9, weights=None, ggrid=None, mid_dw=True, write=0, mol=None, grid_p_unit='Pa', p_unit='unspecified', kdata_unit='unspecified', file_kdata_unit='unspecified', remove_zeros=False, **kwargs)[source]

Computes a k coeff table from Hires_spectrum objects (inplace).

Warning

By default, log pressures are specified in Pa in logpgrid!!! If you want to use another unit, do not forget to specify it with the grid_p_unit keyword.

Parameters
  • path (String) – directory with the input files

  • filename_grid (array of str with shape (logpgrid.size,tgrid.size)) – Names of the input high-res spectra. If None, the files are assumed to follow Kspectrum/LMDZ convention, i.e. be of the type ‘k001’, ‘k002’, etc. See create_fname_grid_Kspectrum_LMDZ() for possible additional keyword arguments.

  • logpgrid (array) – Grid in log(pressure) of the input. Default unit is Pa, but can be changed with the grid_p_unit keyword.

  • tgrid (array) – Grid in temperature of the input.

  • wnedges (array) – Edges of the wavenumber bins to be used to compute the corr-k

Other Parameters
  • weights (array, optional) – If weights are provided, they are used instead of the legendre quadrature.

  • quad (string, optional) – Type of quadrature used. Default is ‘legendre’. Also available: ‘split-legendre’ which uses half quadrature points between 0. and g_split and half between g_split and 1.

  • order (Integer, optional) – Order of the Gauss legendre quadrature used. Default is 20.

  • g_split (float, optional) – Used only if quad=’split-legendre’. See above.

  • mid_dw (boolean, optional) –

    • If True, the Xsec values in the high resolution xsec data are assumed to cover a spectral interval that is centered around the corresponding wavenumber value. The first and last Xsec values are discarded.

    • If False, each interval runs from the wavenumber value to the next one. The last Xsec value is dicarded.

  • mol (string, optional) – Give a name to the molecule. Useful when used later in a Kdatabase to track molecules.

  • p_unit (str, optional) – Pressure unit to convert to.

  • grid_p_unit (str, optional) – Unit of the specified logpgrid.

  • kdata_unit (str, optional) – Kdata unit to convert to.

  • file_kdata_unit (str, optional) – Kdata unit in input files.

See create_fname_grid_Kspectrum_LMDZ() or Hires_spectrum for a list of additional arguments that can be provided to those funtion through **kwargs.
