Initial conditions for N-body/SPH simulations of galaxy cluster mergers

Abstract

In astrophysical simulations, a crucial issue is that of the construction of initial conditions. I review here one of the commonly used techniques to create initial conditions for N-body simulations. I describe the problem of creating an N-body realization of a spherical system with a given density pro le, using the distribution function obtained from Eddington's formula. Such models, consisting of dark matter and gas, may then be used to simulate mergers of galaxy clusters.

Keywords

numerical simulations, hydrodynamical simulations, extragalactic astrophysics, galaxy clusters.
