Plasma Calculator


This functionality is under development. Backward incompatible changes might occur in future releases.


The Plasma Calculator is an interactive Jupyter notebook that is packaged with plasmapy, and allows users to input a set of plasma properties and immediately calculate multiple plasma parameters.


This functionality is still under development and the API may change in future releases.

Using Plasma Calculator

To invoke the app use plasma-calculator in the command line. By default this opens the app in a browser, bootstrapping the notebook in a light theme and using port 8866 by default.

plasma-calculator takes optional arguments such as --dark, --port, and --no-browser. Pass flag -h or --help to get full list of supported arguments.
