Title: cluster trials v. 1.0

Abstract

This software contains a set of python modules – input, search, cluster, analysis; these modules read input files containing spatial coordinates and associated attributes which can be used to perform nearest neighbor search (spatial indexing via kdtree), cluster analysis/identification, and calculation of spatial statistics for analysis.

  • We perform a series of simulations of evolving star clusters using the Astrophysical Multipurpose Software Environment (AMUSE), a new community-based multi-physics simulation package, and compare our results to existing work. These simulations model a star cluster beginning with a King model distribution and a selection of power-law initial mass functions and contain a tidal cutoff. They are evolved using collisional stellar dynamics and include mass loss due to stellar evolution. After studying and understanding that the differences between AMUSE results and results from previous studies are understood, we explored the variation in cluster lifetimes due to the random realization noisemore » introduced by transforming a King model to specific initial conditions. This random realization noise can affect the lifetime of a simulated star cluster by up to 30%. Two modes of star cluster dissolution were identified: a mass evolution curve that contains a runaway cluster dissolution with a sudden loss of mass, and a dissolution mode that does not contain this feature. We refer to these dissolution modes as 'dynamical' and 'relaxation' dominated, respectively. For Salpeter-like initial mass functions, we determined the boundary between these two modes in terms of the dynamical and relaxation timescales.« less
  • This thesis develops a prototyping facility to support accurate exploratory modeling of the temporal structure of real-time, concurrent software systems on a parallel-processor architecture. The hierarchical bus parallel processor architecture, called the Real Time Cluster Star (RTCS*), is the hardware on which an executive operating system, the Extended Multi-Computer Real Time Executive (E-MCORTEX), provides the capability for concurrent real time processing. The prototyping facility is a tool to aid the system designer to assess the tasking structure and the resulting temporal behavior of concurrent multiprocess systems. This facility allows an early modeling of a proposed real-time system so that themore » system's design flaws can be discovered and corrected before the system is fully developed.« less
