[ascl:2203.029] Bootsik: Potential field calculator

The Bootsik software generates and visualizes potential magnetic fields. bootsik.f90 generates a potential magnetic field on a 3D mesh, staggered relative to the magnetic potential, by extrapolating the magnetic field normal to the photospheric surface. The code first calculates a magnetic potential using a modified Green’s function method and then uses a finite differencing scheme to calculate the magnetic field from the potential. The IDL script can then be used to visualize the magnetic field.
