Advanced: Alternate Backends

Setup

As always, let’s do imports and initialize a logger and a new Bundle. See Building a System for more details.

import phoebe
from phoebe import u # units
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

logger = phoebe.logger()

b = phoebe.default_binary()
WARNING: Constant u'Gravitational constant' is already has a definition in the u'si' system [astropy.constants.constant]
WARNING: Constant u'Solar mass' is already has a definition in the u'si' system [astropy.constants.constant]
WARNING: Constant u'Solar radius' is already has a definition in the u'si' system [astropy.constants.constant]
WARNING: Constant u'Solar luminosity' is already has a definition in the u'si' system [astropy.constants.constant]
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/astropy/units/quantity.py:782: FutureWarning: comparison to None will result in an elementwise object comparison in the future.
  return super(Quantity, self).__eq__(other)

And we’ll attach some dummy datasets. See Datasets for more details.

b.add_dataset('orb', times=np.linspace(0,10,1000), dataset='orb01', component=['primary', 'secondary'])
<ParameterSet: 3 parameters | contexts: compute, dataset>
b.add_dataset('lc', times=np.linspace(0,10,1000), dataset='lc01')
<ParameterSet: 15 parameters | contexts: compute, dataset>

Available Backends

See the Compute Tutorial for details on adding compute options and using them to create synthetic models.

PHOEBE 1.0 Legacy

For more details, see Comparing PHOEBE 2.0 vs PHOEBE Legacy

b.add_compute('legacy', compute='legacybackend')
print b['legacybackend']

Using Alternate Backends

Adding Compute Options

Adding a set of compute options for an alternate backend is just as easy as for the PHOEBE backend. Simply provide the function or name of the function in phoebe.parameters.compute that points to the parameters for that backend.

Here we’ll add the default PHOEBE backend as well as the PHOEBE 1.0 (legacy) backend. Note that in order to use an alternate backend, that backend must be installed on your machine.

b.add_compute('phoebe', compute='phoebebackend')
<ParameterSet: 21 parameters | datasets: lc01, orb01>
print b['phoebebackend']
ParameterSet: 21 parameters
  dynamics_method@phoebebacke...: keplerian

  atm@primary@phoebebackend@c...: ck2004
  atm@secondary@phoebebackend...: ck2004
  lc_method@phoebebackend@com...: numerical
  fti_method@phoebebackend@co...: none

Running Compute

Nothing changes for running compute - simply provide the compute tag for those options. Do note, however, that not all backends support all dataset types.

But, since the legacy backend doesn’t support ck2004 atmospheres and interpolated limb-darkening, we do need to choose a limb-darkening law.

Running Multiple Backends Simultaneously

Running multiple backends simultaneously is just as simple as running the PHOEBE backend with multiple sets of compute options (see Compute).

We just need to make sure that each dataset is only enabled for one (or none) of the backends that we want to use, and then send a list of the compute tags to run_compute. Here we’ll use the PHOEBE backend to compute orbits and the legacy backend to compute light curves.

b.set_value_all('enabled@lc01@phoebebackend', False)
#b.set_value_all('enabled@orb01@legacybackend', False)  # don't need this since legacy NEVER computes orbits
print b['enabled']
ParameterSet: 5 parameters

   enabled@lc01@phoebe01@compute: True
  enabled@lc01@legacybackend@...: True
  enabled@lc01@phoebebackend@...: False

<ParameterSet: 16 parameters | kinds: orb, lc>

The parameters inside the returned model even remember which set of compute options (and therefore, in this case, which backend) were used to compute them.
