class
CompoundPhaseDiagram
(entries, terminal_compositions, normalize_terminal_compositions=True)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.analysis.phase_diagram.PhaseDiagram
Generates phase diagrams from compounds as terminations instead of elements.
Initializes a CompoundPhaseDiagram.
Parameters:  entries ([PDEntry]) – Sequence of input entries. For example, if you want a Li2OP2O5 phase diagram, you might have all LiPO entries as an input.
 terminal_compositions ([Composition]) – Terminal compositions of phase space. In the Li2OP2O5 example, these will be the Li2O and P2O5 compositions.
 normalize_terminal_compositions (bool) – Whether to normalize the terminal compositions to a per atom basis. If normalized, the energy above hulls will be consistent for comparison across systems. Nonnormalized terminals are more intuitive in terms of compositional breakdowns.

transform_entries

If the entry does not fall within the space defined by the terminal compositions, they are excluded. For example, Li3PO4 is mapped into a Li2O:1.5, P2O5:0.5 composition. The terminal compositions are represented by DummySpecies.
Parameters:  entries – Sequence of all input entries
 terminal_compositions – Terminal compositions of phase space.

GrandPotentialPhaseDiagram
(entries, chempots, elements=None)[source]¶ Bases:
pymatgen.analysis.phase_diagram.PhaseDiagram
A class representing a Grand potential phase diagram. Grand potential phase diagrams are essentially phase diagrams that are open to one or more components.
