Gravitational N-body Simulations: How Massive Black Holes Interact with Stellar Systems
Speakers:
Alessandra Mastrobuono, Roberto Capuzzo-Dolcetta
- Sapienza Univ. of Roma
Abstract:
Astrophysics is a field where super computing is a must to obtain new scientific results. in particular, the study of the interaction among massive black holes and surrounding stars is a hot topic, which requires heavy computations to have good representation of what happens in the inner regions of galaxies. We present the results obtained with our high precisioned N-body code, NBSymple, which exploits the joint power of a multi core CPU system together with the high performance NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPUs. The code is available at the website: astrowww.phys.uniroma1.it/dolcetta/nbsymple.html
