geoana.em.BaseDipole.cross_orientation#

BaseDipole.cross_orientation(xyz)#

Cross products between a gridded set of vectors and the orientation of the source.

Where \(\mathbf{p}\) is the vector defining the orientation of the source and \(\mathbf{v}\) is a 3D vector, this method returns the cross product:

\[\mathbf{v} \times \mathbf{p}\]

for all vectors \(\mathbf{v}\) supplied in the input argument vecs.

Parameters
vecs(n, 3) numpy.ndarray

A set of 3D vectors

Returns
  1. numpy.ndarray Cross product between each vector supplied and the source orientation.
