Inheritance diagram of MagnetostaticSphere
class geoana.em.static.MagnetostaticSphere(radius, mu_sphere, mu_background, primary_field=None, location=None)#

Class for magnetostatic solutions for a permeable sphere in a uniform magnetostatic field.

The MagnetostaticSphere class is used to analytically compute the magnetic potentials, fields, and magnetic flux densities for a permeable sphere in a uniform magnetostatic field.

Parameters
radiusfloat

radius of sphere (m).

mu_spherefloat

permeability of target sphere (H/m).

mu_backgroundfloat

background permeability (H/m).

primary_field(3) array_like, optional

amplitude of primary magnetic field. Default is (1, 0, 0)

location(3) array_like, optional

Center of the sphere. Default is (0, 0, 0).

Attributes
