N-body IntegrationA simulation of a simple N-body systemStars are chosen randomly from a Plummer model in virial equilibrium.
All stars are point masses. By default, all masses are identical. To change this, specify a mass range (in the form low:high) in the box below (a Salpeter distribution is assumed).
Length unit = 1. Standard crossing time = 2.8 time units.
To start the simulation set N (3 <= N <= 100) and press "Run".
