7. Additional tools

SPPARKS is designed to be a Monte Carlo (MC) kernel for performing kinetic MC or Metropolis MC computations. Additional pre- and post-processing steps are often necessary to setup and analyze a simulation. This section describes additional tools that may be useful.

Users can extend SPPARKS by writing diagnostic classes that perform desired analysis or computations. See this section for more info.

Our group has written and released a separate toolkit called Pizza.py which provides tools which may be useful for setup, analysis, plotting, and visualization of SPPARKS simulations. Pizza.py is written in Python and is available for download from the Pizza.py WWW site.
