Sverre Aarseth's N-Body Workshop

The N-body training workshop will be held at KIAA from 30 October to 22 November 2012. The workshop consists of several lectures, but for most of the time the students will work on practical problems in the field of N-body dynamics. Students are expected to actively participate in all activities. The programming exercises can be carried out individually, but preferably in a group of two students. The training workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students at Peking University, NAOC, and other institutions. There is no registration fee. If you have a laptop, please bring it to the workshop.

Rainer Spurzem's N-Body Lecture

Please find 
Scanned Lecture Notes 2010 (17MB) and Scanned Lecture Notes 2011 (4MB) two files with scanned hand-written lecture notes. The material does not exactly agree with our lecture in Beijing 2011/2012, but should be helpful, hopefully.

You want to listen to earlier lectures? Here are video recordings of Rainer's N-Body Lectures in Heidelberg Dec. 2006. Beware: there may be some differences to today's lectures...
