This parameter is specific to a set of simulations performed to evaluate the efficiency of planet trapping at a disk temperature transition. Unless you want to reproduce these very specific simulations, you should simply ignore this variable. If you use it, you also have to define `TransitionRadius` and `TransitionRatio` . `TransitionWidth` is the radial distance , expressed in disk pressure scale heights
, over which the temperature transition occurs. More precisely, the logarithm of the disk aspect ratio is an affine function of between and .
