Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Written by a bestselling author, this is a modern view of the dynamics and evolution of star clusters combined with thorough coverage of the computational techniques. Targeted, relatively simple programs are used to demonstrate basic points of physics, whereby these programs may be linked to show how the combination of physical processes can lead to qualitatively new behavior. In addition, illustrative examples are provided for the novice. More advanced readers may experiment with the various modules (or write their own), allowing them to quickly modify the physics without having to make wholesale changes to the larger program. More technical issues, such as advanced algorithms, hardware acceleration, and high-performance parallel computing, are discussed in a series of appendices, with sample software compatible with the framework provided on a companion web site. This is a simplified and streamlined version of the authors' own MUSE research environment, and is compatible with the additional software found on the MUSE web site.
Aimed primarily at graduate students and post-docs, this is equally of interest to observers and researchers in related fields who might wish to model specific systems or processes of interest.
