Symplectic integration for the collisional gravitational $N$-body problem

Kavli Affiliate: Edmund Bertschinger | First 5 Authors: David M. Hernandez, Edmund Bertschinger, , , | Summary: We present a new symplectic integrator designed for collisional gravitational $N$-body problems which makes use of Kepler solvers. The integrator is also reversible and conserves 9 integrals of motion of the $N$-body problem to machine precision. The integrator […]
