Many-Body Tree Methods in Physicsby Susanne Pfalzner, Paul Gibbon
Pub. Date: 07/31/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Studying the dynamics of a large number of particles interacting through long-range forces, commonly referred to as the 'N-body problem', is a central aspect of many different branches of physics. In recent years, significant advances have been made in the development of fast N-body algorithms to deal efficiently with such complex problems. This book is the first to give a thorough introduction to these so-called 'tree methods', setting out the basic principles and giving many practical examples of their use.
