Application of the Verlet method for the simulation of a gravitational system of n bodies

By J. Medina, C. Acosta, M. Flota-Bañuelos and R. Peón-Escalante

Abstract

In this paper we propose a numerical solution (software simulation) of the "problem of n bodies" that interact gravitationally based on the formulation of Verlet. Additionally a program is designed that graphically shows the results of this numerical solution, which details the different trajectories, for different conditions of mass, speed and distance between the n objects that interact. The interaction of the user with the graphical interface, is performed particle by particle.&nbsp
