Monte-Carlo Models of Collisional Stellar Systems

  • Marc Freitag
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 760)

In this chapter I describe a fast, approximate, particle-based algorithm to compute the long-term evolution of stellar clusters and galactic nuclei. It relies on the assumptions of spherical symmetry of the stellar system, dynamical equilibrium and local, diffusive two-body relaxation. It allows for velocity anisotropy, an arbitrary stellar mass spectrum, stellar evolution, a central massive object, collision between stars, binary processes and two-body encounters leading to large deflection angles. Using


Globular Cluster Stellar Evolution Loss Cone Tidal Disruption Central Massive Object 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
