Ionization related functionality (plasmapy.formulary.ionization)

Functions related to ionization states and the properties thereof.

Functions

 ionization_balance(n, T_e) Return the average ionization state of ions in a plasma assuming that the numbers of ions in each state are equal. Saha(g_j, g_k, n_e, E_jk, T_e) Return the ratio of populations of two ionization states.

Aliases

PlasmaPy provides short-named (alias) versions of the most common plasma functionality. These aliases are only given to functionality where there is a common lexicon in the community, for example has the alias . All aliases in PlasmaPy are denoted with a trailing underscore _.

 Z_bal_(n, T_e) Alias for ionization_balance.
