name

symmetrize - symmetrizes snapshots

synopsis

symmetrize [parameter=value]

requirement

requires NEMO version 3.0.13 or higher, see http://www.astro.umd.edu/nemo.

description

symmetrize takes input snapshots, symmetrizes them by reflecting the bodies at the origin and the equator, and writes them out again.

parameters

in=file
Input snapshots are read from file, which must be in NEMO snapshot format and contain at least positions. If file=-, input is expected from stdin, useful for piping data from another program. Default: required
out=file
Snapshots are written in NEMO snapshot format to file with same body data as the input. Default: required.
times=time range(s)
Range(s) of simulation times, for which snapshots shall be processed. Default: all.
use=num
Every numth body of the input snapshot is processed. Default: 2.
copy=num [0,1,2]
Every processed body is replaced by 2^num (up to 4) copies. If num=0, the body is simply copied. num=1, the body is replaced by its very copy and another body obtained by reflection at the origin. num=2, each body is replaced by four copies obtained by reflection at the origin and the equator (z=0 plane). Default: 1.

remark

Useful for isolated stellar systems only.
