Make your own custom two body model

In this example, a user can follow the instructions in /feasst/plugin/example/include/model_example.h to make their own custom model.

import sys
import subprocess
import unittest
import pandas as pd

Write a two site xyz file for testing the energy with a cubic box length of 8, one particle on the origin and the second particle a distance of 1.125 away from the origin along the z-axis.

with open('', 'w') as myfile: myfile.write("""2
-1 8 8 8
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 1.125

Prepare to run a feasst simulation with the given parameters

def run_fst(params):
    with open("launch.txt", "w") as myfile: myfile.write("""
Configuration particle_type0 /feasst/plugin/example/particle/jagla.fstprt xyz_file
Potential Model ModelExample num_discretized_steps {num_discretized_steps}
ThermoParams beta 1
Log output_file log.csv max_precision true clear_file true
Run num_trials 1
    syscode ="../../../build/bin/fst < launch.txt > launch.log", shell=True, executable='/bin/bash')
    if syscode > 0: sys.exit(1)

Run the test and check the energy.

class TestExampleText(unittest.TestCase):
    def test_model(self):
        run_fst({"num_discretized_steps": "0"})
        df = pd.read_csv('log.csv')
        self.assertEqual(2, df['p0'][0])
        self.assertEqual(0.5, df['energy'][0])

unittest.main(argv=[''], verbosity=2, exit=False)
test_model (__main__.TestExampleText) ... ok
