Welcome to MODEST/MANYBODY

http://www.manybody.org


The aim of this web site is to present a convenient entry point for various activities related to simulations of stellar systems. These include MODEST (MOdeling DEnse STellar systems), a collaboration between groups working in stellar dynamics, stellar evolution, and stellar hydrodynamics, and the MANYBODY collaboration for stellar dynamics software, hardware, and visualization.

MODEST stands for MOdeling DEnse STellar systems, and is a loosely knit collaboration between various groups working in stellar dynamics, stellar evolution, and stellar hydrodynamics. Our aim is to provide a software framework for large scale simulations of dense stellar systems, in which existing codes for dynamics, stellar evolution, and hydrodynamics can be easily coupled. The web site presents up-to-date information about our efforts to combine stellar evolution and hydrodynamic codes directly with N-body simulations, and gives pointers to various projects in progress.

The MANYBODY web site offers the open source software environments NEMO and STARLAB, for setting up, running, and analyzing large-scale simulations in stellar dynamics, along with the PARTIVIEW visualization package. We also provide links to the GRAPE (GRAvitational PipelinE) project, creating special purpose hardware for stellar dynamics, at speeds approaching 100 Teraflops.
