Name

mknsh96 - set up a Kuzmin disk in an external potential (NSH96)

Synopsis

mknsh96 [parameter=value]

Description

mknsh96 sets up a 2-dimensional Kuzmin disk in an external potential as prescribed in the paper bla bla by Norman, Sellwood & Hasan (1996, ApJ 462, 114). If you follow the NSH96 paper, the NEMO potential ’nsh96’ (potname=nsh96) should be used appropriately (see EXAMPLES below).

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized in any order if the keyword is also given:
out=
output file name, in standard snapshot format. No default.
nbody=
number of particles [1024]
potname=
External potential []
potpars=
Potential parameters []
potfile=
Potential data []
Qtoomre=
Toomre’s Q parameter [1.0]
gamma=
fudge factor for v_eff(r) if > 0 [1.0]
seed=
usual random number seed [0]
rmax=
Cutoff radius [6]
time=
tag a time, normally skipped [0.0]
tab=
table output also? [f]
zerocm=
center the snapshot? [t]
headline=
text headline for output []

Examples

The usage of the standard nsh96 potential is slighly tricky, since the potential of the self-consistent part (the Kuzmin disk) can (and should) be used in this routine, but not in the integrator.
