    • Mixing in massive stellar mergers 

      Gaburov, Evghenii; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Portegies Zwart, Simon (Oxford University Press, 2007-09-21)
      The early evolution of dense star clusters is possibly dominated by close interactions between stars, and physical collisions between stars may occur quite frequently. Simulating a stellar collision event can be an intensive ...
    • A Multiphysics and Multiscale Software Environment for Modeling Astrophysical Systems 

      Portegies Zwart, Simon; McMillan, Steve; Ó Nualláin, Breanndán; Heggie, Douglas; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Hut, Piet; Banerjee, Sambaran; Belkus, Houria; Fragos, Tassos; Fregeau, John; Fuji, Michiko; Gaburov, Evghenii; Glebbeek, Evert; Groen, Derek; Harfst, Stefan; Izzard, Rob; Jurić, Mario; Justham, Stephen; Teuben, Peter; van Bever, Joris; Yaron, Ofer; Zemp, Marcel (Springer, 2008)
      We present MUSE, a software framework for tying together existing computational tools for different astrophysical domains into a single multiphysics, multiscale workload. MUSE facilitates the coupling of existing codes ...
    • On the onset of runaway stellar collisions in dense star clusters -- II. Hydrodynamics of three-body interactions 

      Gaburov, Evghenii; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Portegies Zwart, Simon (Oxford University Press, 2009-10-18)
      The onset of runaway stellar collisions in young star clusters is more likely to initiate with an encounter between a binary and a third star than between two single stars. Using the initial conditions of such three-star ...
