Running SWIFT with Light Cone OutputΒΆ

To produce light cone particle output swift must be configured with --enable-lightcone. Additionally, making HEALPix maps requires the HEALPix C library. If using MPI then parallel HDF5 is also required.

One lightcone is produced for each LightconeX section in the parameter file, where X=0-7. This allows generation of up to 8 light cones. See Light Cone Outputs for details.

SWIFT must be run with the --lightcone flag to activate light cone outputs, otherwise the Lightcone sections in the parameter file are ignored.
