Cold Molecules trajectory simulations suite libcoldmol

Coldmol calculations and programming library


The libcoldmol package provides basic routines for the simulation and data acquisition tasks performed in the cold-molecules research. The library provides all code necessary to perform timesequence and trajectory calculations and some support routines for the data acquisition program KouDA. libcoldmol is written in C++.

Libcoldmol provides a number of standalone tools to perform such tasks as calculating timesequences or performing trajectory simulations. See the Related Pages section of the developer documentation for a list of them and their usage.

The Stark effect calculations in this code are superseded by CMIstark, which provides input compatible to the libcoldmol trajectory calculations.

The library and programm suite was originally developed and written by Jochen Küpper. The Stark effect calculations of asymmetric tops and many improvements to the trajectory calculations were imlemented by Frank Filsinger. Smaller improvements were implemented by Fabian Grätz, Stephan Putzke, and Yuan-Pin Chang. Helpful discussions on trajectory simulations with Nicolas Vanhaecke and on symmetries in Stark effect calculations with Boris Sartakov are acknowledged.
