New in version 0.5.3

August 14th, 2013
  • The methods and functions for calculating ionization cross section were never properly implemented, and this has been corrected.
  • The calculation of ionization rate coefficients were performed correctly.
  • Errors in the calculation of photo-excitation and stimulated emission have been corrected.

New in version 0.5.1 (February 8th, 2013)

  • This version fixes a major bug. Users are strongly suggested to upgrade to this version.

New in version 0.5.0 (January 25th, 2013)

  • The ion class has a new method - emissList - to provide a list of lines in a given wavelength range.
  • The ion.intensityRatio has a new keyword argument "wvlRanges" so that by setting wvlRanges =[[100.,200.],[500.,600]], the top number of lines will be compiled from with the two specified ranges only, i.e., 201-499 will not be included.

New in version 0.4.2 (May 30th, 2012)

  • This is a bugfix release.

New in version 0.4.0 (August 31st, 2011)

  • This version adds the class radLoss to calculate radiative losses and plot the results.
  • The method ion.popPlot now plots a histogram of level populations if only a single value of temperature and density are specified.
  • Previously, it expected multiple temperatures or densities.
  • A number of bugfixes have been made.

New in version 0.3.1 (June 29th, 2011)

  • Various bugs were fixed.

New in version 0.3 (December 10th, 2010)

  • This version adds the mspectrum class, which allows users to use multiple local CPU cores for spectral calculations that can be time consuming.
  • In addition, there are numerous bugfixes.
