Description

BurnMan is an open source mineral physics toolbox written in Python to determine seismic velocities for the lower mantle. BurnMan calculates the isotropic thermoelastic moduli by solving the equations-of-state for a mixture of minerals defined by the user. The user may select from a list of minerals applicable to the lower mantle included or easily define one of their own.

Features:

  • major documentation overhaul
  • new tutorials
  • huge performance improvements by caching property values
  • python 3 compatibility
  • gibbs free energy computation
  • new SolidSolution class
  • added ideal, symmetric, asymmetric and subregular solution model formulations
  • computation of chemical potentials
  • updated ipython notebooks
  • new seismic models
  • added EoS fitting functions
  • using jit compilation if available
  • additional equations of state: Vinet, BM4, ...
  • a large number of new minerals in the databases
  • much better test coverage
