Making codes discoverable since 1999

Searching for codes credited to 'Boocock, Callum M.'

Tip! Refine or expand your search. Authors are sometimes listed as 'Smith, J. K.' instead of 'Smith, John' so it is useful to search for last names only. Note this is currently a simple phrase search.

[ascl:2203.029] Bootsik: Potential field calculator

The Bootsik software generates and visualizes potential magnetic fields. bootsik.f90 generates a potential magnetic field on a 3D mesh, staggered relative to the magnetic potential, by extrapolating the magnetic field normal to the photospheric surface. The code first calculates a magnetic potential using a modified Green’s function method and then uses a finite differencing scheme to calculate the magnetic field from the potential. The IDL script can then be used to visualize the magnetic field.

[ascl:2203.030] Wigglewave: Linearized governing equations solver

Wigglewave uses a finite difference method to solve the linearized governing equations for a torsion Alfvèn wave propagating in a plasma with negligible plasma beta and in a force-free axisymmetric magnetic field with no azimuthal component embedded in a high density divergent tube structure. Wigglewave is fourth order in time and space using a fourth-order central difference scheme for calculating spatial derivatives and a fourth-order Runge-Kutta (RK4) scheme for updating at each timestep. The solutions calculated are the perturbations to the velocity, v and to the magnetic field, b. All variables are calculated over a uniform grid in radius r and height z.

[ascl:2203.031] TAWAS: Wave equation solver

TAWAS solves the wave equation for torsional Alfvèn waves in a viscous plasma. The background magnetic field is axisymmetric and force-free with no azimuthal component and the plasma beta is assumed to be negligible. The solution is calculated over a uniform numerical grid with coordinates r and z for the radius and height respectively. TAWAS, written in IDL, requires no input files. The problem parameters at the top of the code can be changed as need. The 'plotting' variable determines which plots are shown by the script; the code contains several options for plotting. Outputs can be saved to a specific location by changing the variables save_dir and run_name listed just below the parameters. The code outputs include solutions for the velocity perturbation, the magnetic field perturbation and the wave energy flux.
