MAPRZ CODE FACT SHEET
1. Code Name: MAPRZ
2. Category: IIc. Plasma Equilibrium: Checking and Mapping
3. Responsible Physicist: J. Manickam
4. Others involved in code development: R. Grimm, B. Rosen, J. Greene, J. Johnson
5. One line description: Takes equilibrium data from RZ equilibrium code and produces flux coordinates and metric quantities needed for MHD stability calculations.
6. Computer systems which code runs on: NERSC-CRAY's , Workstations
7. Typical running time (if applicable): 5-10 minutes
8. Approximate number of code lines: 5000
9. Does this code read data files from another code? Yes, reads equilibrium data from RZ equilibrium code.
10. Does this code produce data files that can be read by another code? Yes, produces MAPDSK and MAPOUT1 files for read by PEST and other codes.
11. 1-2 paragraph description of code: This code takes the output of a RZ equilibrium code, smooths it with cubic splines, and calculates the flux coordinates and other metric quantities that a stability code would need to calculate the stability of equilibria produced by an RZ equilibrium code such as FQ.
12. Similar codes to this code, and distinguishing differences: The MAPPER code is similar, but it uses equilibrium code data that is already in flux coordinates.
