toVerticalPotential
(Pot, R, phi=None, t0=0.0)[source]¶ NAME:
toVerticalPotentialPURPOSE:
convert a Potential to a vertical potential at a given R: Phi(z,phi,t) = Phi(R,z,phi,t)Phi(R,0.,phi0,t0) where phi0 and t0 are the phi and t inputsINPUT:
Pot  Potential instance or list of such instances
R  Galactocentric radius at which to evaluate the vertical potential (can be Quantity)
phi= (None) Galactocentric azimuth at which to evaluate the vertical potential (can be Quantity); required if Pot is nonaxisymmetric
t0= (0.) time at which to evaluate the vertical potential (can be Quantity)
