pymatgen.util.coord_cython module¶
Utilities for manipulating coordinates or list of coordinates, under periodic boundary conditions or otherwise.

coord_list_mapping_pbc
()¶ Gives the index mapping from a subset to a superset. Superset cannot contain duplicate matching rows
Parameters: superset (subset,) – List of frac_coords Returns: list of indices such that superset[indices] = subset

is_coord_subset_pbc
()¶ Tests if all fractional coords in subset are contained in superset. Allows specification of a mask determining pairs that are not allowed to match to each other
Parameters: superset (subset,) – List of fractional coords Returns: True if all of subset is in superset.

pbc_shortest_vectors
()¶ Returns the shortest vectors between two lists of coordinates taking into account periodic boundary conditions and the lattice.
Parameters:  lattice – lattice to use
 fcoords1 – First set of fractional coordinates. e.g., [0.5, 0.6, 0.7] or [[1.1, 1.2, 4.3], [0.5, 0.6, 0.7]]. Must be np.float_
 fcoords2 – Second set of fractional coordinates.
 mask (int_ array) – Mask of matches that are not allowed. i.e. if mask[1,2] == True, then subset[1] cannot be matched to superset[2]
 lll_frac_tol (float_ array of length 3) – Fractional tolerance (per LLL lattice vector) over which the calculation of minimum vectors will be skipped. Can speed up calculation considerably for large structures.
Returns: array of displacement vectors from fcoords1 to fcoords2 first index is fcoords1 index, second is fcoords2 index
