Open Cluster Evolutions in Binary System: How They Dissolved [article]

2013 arXiv   pre-print
In this study, we performed N-body simulations of merger binary clusters with different initial conditions.  ...  After merging, these clusters dissolve with greater mass-loss rate because of their angular momentum. These rotating clusters also experience more deceleration caused by external tidal field.  ...  Conclusions In this study, several N-body simulations of merger binary clusters are performed.  ...

How to Form (Twin) Globular Clusters? [article]

Christian Theis (Institut f. Theoretische Physik und Astrophysik, University of Kiel, Kiel, Germany)
2000 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper the final collapse stages of the different scenarios are compared by N-body simulations for shells and spheres. It is shown that fragmentation is much more pronounced for shells.  ...  Taking a galactic tidal field into account shells preferably form twin (or multiple) systems, whereas spheres end up as single clusters.  ...  N-body simulations are performed for isolated configurations as well as for collapses within a galactic tidal field.  ...
