  • High-Performance Computing of Self-Gravity for Small Solar System Bodies

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):34 - 39
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1126 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    To study the evolution of small solar system bodies like asteroids and comets, a fast method is needed to compute the self-gravity of systems composed of millions of particles. A proposed fully parallel shared-memory algorithm for dense, self-gravitating agglomerates scales efficiently with the number of particles as well as the number of computational resources.
