Name

plummer - tabulate Osipkov-Merritt generalization of Plummer model

Synopsis

plummer out=out_file [parameter=value] ...

Description

plummer tabulates an Osipkov-Merritt-Plummer model. The output file, written in binary format, may be used with mkommod(1NEMO) .

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized.
out=out_file
Write binary OsipkovMerrittModel data to out_file. Default: required.
anisorad=anisotropy_radius
Radius at which the distribution function becomes significantly anisotropic. If negative, an isotropic model is tabulated. Default: -1.0.
mcutoff=frac_mass_cutoff
The output tables extend to the radius corresponding to this fraction of the total mass. Default: 0.999999.
