Extended Czjzek distribution Model

class mrsimulator.models.ExtCzjzekDistribution(symmetric_tensor: mrsimulator.spin_system.tensors.SymmetricTensor, eps: float, polar=False)

An extended Czjzek distribution distribution model.

The extended Czjzek random distribution 1 model is an extension of the Czjzek model, given as

(41)\[S_T = S(0) + \rho S_C(\sigma=1),\]

where \(S_T\) is the total tensor, \(S(0)\) is the dominant tensor, \(S_C(\sigma=1)\) is the Czjzek random model attributing to the random perturbation of the tensor about the dominant tensor, \(S(0)\), and \(\rho\) is the size of the perturbation. Note, in the above equation, the \(\sigma\) parameter from the Czjzek random model, \(S_C\), has no meaning and is set to one. The factor, \(\rho\), is defined as

(42)\[\rho = \frac{||S(0)|| \epsilon}{\sqrt{30}},\]

where \(\|S(0)\|\) is the 2-norm of the dominant tensor, and \(\epsilon\) is a fraction.

rvs(size: int)

Draw random variates of length size from the distribution.


size – The number of random points to draw.


A list of two NumPy array, where the first and the second array are the anisotropic/quadrupolar coupling constant and asymmetry parameter, respectively.

pdf(pos, size: int = 400000)

Generates a probability distribution function by binning the random variates of length size onto the given grid system.

  • pos – A list of coordinates along the two dimensions given as NumPy arrays.

  • size – The number of random variates drawn in generating the pdf. The default is 400000.


A list of x and y coordinates and the corresponding amplitudes.
