Core components¶
The low-level functions and classes described here are part of the hiPhive core components and not intended to be used directly during normal operation.
config¶
- class hiphive.core.config.config[source]
- hiphive.core.config.constraint_vectors_compress_mode = 'symbolic'
True, False
- hiphive.core.config.constraint_vectors_simplify_before_compress = True
‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’, None
- hiphive.core.config.constraint_vectors_simplify_before_solve = True
‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_compress_before_solve = None
This might make the nullspace() more stable True, False
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_compress_mode = None
If this is True, before every symbolic compression the values will be simplified by sympy, potentially turning them into exact rational or irrational numbers. This can be useful for systems with non-integer rotation matrices in cartesian coordinates e.g. hcp. The main purpose is to make the rref more stable against repeating rounding errors. True, False
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_simplify_before_compress = False
If non compress was used during construction but used before solving True, False
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_simplify_before_last_compress = False
If the compress_mode is None the constraint matrix might be compressed right before the nullspace() solver ‘numeric’, ‘symbolic’, None
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_simplify_before_solve = True
‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’
- hiphive.core.config.eigentensor_solve_mode = 'symbolic'
‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’
- hiphive.core.config.integer_tolerance = 1e-12
For each symmetry, the constraint matrix can be reduced to square again. This can be done either by ‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’ or not at all (None). Default is None since the matrix is often small enough to fit in memory. ‘symbolic’, ‘numeric’, None
- hiphive.core.config.sum_rule_constraint_mode = 'symbolic'
True, False
- hiphive.core.config.sum_rule_constraint_simplify = True
True, False
cluster_space_builder¶
- hiphive.core.cluster_space_builder.build_cluster_space(cluster_space, prototype_structure)[source]
The permutation list is an indexed fast lookup table for permutation vectors.
clusters¶
- hiphive.core.clusters.create_neighbor_matrices(atoms, cutoff)[source]
- hiphive.core.clusters.extend_cluster(cluster, order)[source]
- hiphive.core.clusters.generate_geometrical_clusters(atoms, n_prim, cutoff, order)[source]
- hiphive.core.clusters.get_clusters(atoms, cutoffs, nPrim, multiplicity=True, use_geometrical_order=False)[source]
Generate a list of all clusters in the atoms object which includes the center atoms with positions within the cell metric. The cutoff determines up to which order and range clusters should be generated.
With multiplicity set to True clusters like [0,0] and [3,3,4 etc will be generated. This is useful when doing force constants but not so much for cluster expansions.
The geometrical order is the total number of different atoms in the cluster. [0,0,1] would have geometrical order 2 and [1,2,3,4] would have order 4. If the key word is True the cutoff criteria will be based on the geometrical order of the cluster. This is based on the observation that many body interactions decrease fast with cutoff but anharmonic interactions can be quite long ranged.
- Parameters
atoms (ase.Atoms) – can be a general atoms object but must have pbc=False.
cutoffs (dict) – the keys specify the order while the values specify the cutoff radii
multiplicity (bool) – includes clusters where same atom appears more than once
geometrical_order (bool) – specifies if the geometrical order should be used as cutoff_order, otherwise the normal order of the cluster is used
- Returns
a list of clusters where each entry is a tuple of indices, which refer to the atoms in the input supercell
- Return type
list(tuple(int))
orbits¶
Contains the Orbit class which hold onformation about equivalent clusters.
- class hiphive.core.orbits.Orbit[source]
This class serves as a container for storing data pertaining to an orbit.
- orientation_families
orientation families of the orbit
- Type
list of OrientationFamily objs
- eigensymmetries
each eigensymmetry corresponds to a pair where the first index is the symmetry and the second is the permutation
- Type
list of tuples
- eigentensors
decomposition of the force constant into symmetry elements
- Type
list(numpy.ndarray)
- property prototype_index
index of cluster that serves as prototype for this orbit
In the code the first symmetry is always the identity so the first orientation family should always correspond to the prototype
- Type
int
- static read(f)[source]
Load a ClusterSpace from file
- Parameters
f (string or file object) – name of input file (string) or stream to load from (file object)
- write(f)[source]
Write a Orbit instance to a file.
- Parameters
f (str or file object) – name of input file (str) or stream to write to (file object)
- class hiphive.core.orbits.OrientationFamily(symmetry_index=None)[source]
A container for storing information for a “family of orientations”.
An orbit contains many clusters. Some of the clusters can be tranlsated onto each other and other must first be rotated. A set of clusters in the orbit which can all be translated onto each other are oriented in the same way and belongs to the same orientation family. The family is haracterized by the symmetry (rotation) which relates it to the prototype structure of the orbit.
Since the clusters are generally stored sorted the permutation information must also be stored.
