Magnetic-fusion data analysis at Los Alamos

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

DAD is a versatile, easy-to-use, easy-to-modify set of programs for Data Analysis and Display. The physicist simply calls a program by its name and a few numbers, which will tell the device, shot, or operation needed. Each command invokes a separately compiled program. This allows each experimenter to write commands to display model calculations or particular devices. Typical displays include: raw and normalized signals, or derived results such as phase-modulation detection Thomson scattering nonlinear fits, wall temperatures from thermocouple conversions, and ion temperatures from Doppler broadening of spectral lines. Multiple-device and multiple-shot displays of single-channel or quadrature signals show progressions ... continued below

Description

DAD is a versatile, easy-to-use, easy-to-modify set of programs for Data Analysis and Display. The physicist simply calls a program by its name and a few numbers, which will tell the device, shot, or operation needed. Each command invokes a separately compiled program. This allows each experimenter to write commands to display model calculations or particular devices. Typical displays include: raw and normalized signals, or derived results such as phase-modulation detection Thomson scattering nonlinear fits, wall temperatures from thermocouple conversions, and ion temperatures from Doppler broadening of spectral lines. Multiple-device and multiple-shot displays of single-channel or quadrature signals show progressions otherwise hard to find. Some programs have three-dimensional displays with contour or surface plots. The shots available on disk and device settings during data recording can be listed; analysis parameters may be shown or set. One number can define a whole series of commands. ODD is a calculator-like program to quickly process data and graph results for user needs that have not been reduced to a standard program. These programs use a shared library on Prime and VAX computers.
