Function Documentation

template<int dim>
std::array< double, dim > GeometricUtilities::Coordinates::to_spherical ( const Point< dim > &  point)

Return spherical coordinates of a Cartesian point point. The returned array is filled with radius, azimuth angle \(\in [0,2 \pi)\) and polar/inclination angle \( \in [0,\pi]\) (ommited in 2D).

In 3D the transformation is given by

\begin{align*} r &= \sqrt{x^2+y^2+z^2} \\ \theta &= {\rm atan}(y/x) \\ \phi &= {\rm acos} (z/r) \end{align*}

template<std::size_t dim>
Point< dim > GeometricUtilities::Coordinates::from_spherical ( const std::array< double, dim > &  scoord)

Return the Cartesian coordinates of a spherical point defined by scoord which is filled with radius \(r \in [0,\infty)\), azimuth angle \(\theta \in [0,2 \pi)\) and polar/inclination angle \(\phi \in [0,\pi]\) (ommited in 2D).

In 3D the transformation is given by

\begin{align*} x &= r\, \cos(\theta) \, \sin(\phi) \\ y &= r\, \sin(\theta) \, \sin(\phi) \\ z &= r\, \cos(\phi) \end{align*}
