Coupled Dipole Approximation in Python

Coupled dipole approximation (CDA) method is a numerical method to calculate the optical properties (scattering and absorption) of interacting dipoles. This method is used in discrete dipole approximation method (like in DDSCAT software), where a big particle (also known as target) is broken into lot of interacting dipoles arranged in cubic lattice. CDA can also Read More …

Python

I am playing with Python for the first time. The syntax seems to be so natural. So many modules (numpy, scipy and matplotlib) for researchers/scientists. Cannot see any shortcoming at this point. Perhaps need more testing and implementation. Some questions I am looking answers for: Is it faster than Fortran? If not faster, can it Read More …
