Contents:
Rainer Spurzem: Post-Newtonian Methods -- NBODY6++ -- Ross Church: Live Stellar Evolution in NBODY6 -- Pavel Kroupa:Young clusters -- Classical clusters -- The IMF -- The initial binary population -- Seppo Mikkola: Regular algorithms for few-body integration -- Marc Freitag: Monte-Carlo methods -- Fokker-Planck methods -- Rosemary Mardling: Resonance, chaos and stability -- Secular evolution of triple systems -- Sverre Aarseth: Codes, scaling and data structure -- Algorithms and Implementations.
Summary: Published under the auspices of the Royal Astronomical Society, this volume contains a set of extensive school tested lectures, with the aim to give a coherent and thorough background knowledge of the subject and to introduce the latest developments in N-body computational astrophysics. The topics cover a wide range from the classical few-body problem with discussions of resonance, chaos and stability to realistic modelling of star clusters as well as descriptions of codes, algorithms and special hardware for N-body simulations. This collection of topics, related to the gravitational N-body problem, will prove useful to both students and researchers in years to come.
