Numerical Codes

The Stars & Planets group use a range of home-made and freely available codes for running simulations. These codes include:

  • N-body: a gravitational N-body code by Sverre Aarseth
  • Stellar and Binary Evolution code: a stellar evolution code by Jarrod Hurley
  • 3D-dusty-gas: a 3D, two-phase, SPH+N-body code by Sarah Maddison, and revised by Mark Hutchison
  • swift: a gravitational N-body code for planetary dynamics simulations by Hal Levison and Martin Duncan, modified by Adam Deller to include solar wind and Poynting-Robertson drag, with a revised version by Eloide Thilliez
