Paper Abstract

N-body methods are used to simulate the evolution and interaction of galaxies. These simulations are usually run on large-scale supercomputers or on very expensive full-custom hardare. This paper presents an alternative hardware method for acceleration of N-body simulations. The method yields a significant fraction of the performance of custom hardware and provides a great deal more flexibility. A protoype implementation is presented.
