Class ssfd.ExpTauE

java.lang.Object
   |
   +----ssfd.ExpTauE

public class ExpTauE
extends Object
Uses a standard power law expression for the energy confinement time. The exponents are specified at instantiation. The resulting expression can then be evaluated for when a set of global plasma parameters is provided. There is also a User's Manual for the full-featured FORTRAN code upon which this code is based. The corresponding equation numbers are mentioned in the code below.
