This work describes research done by the Milky-Way@Home project to use N-Body simulations to model the formation of the Milky Way Galaxy's halo. While there have been previous efforts to use N-Body simulations to perform astronomical modeling, to our knowledge this is the first to use evolutionary algorithms to discover the initial parameters to the N-Body simulations so that they accurately model astronomical data. Performing a single 32,000 body simulation can take up to 200 hours on adoi:10.1109/ipdps.2011.346 dblp:conf/ipps/DesellMSVWAN11 fatcat:igsa6tnbuvdmfbvzt2dddcypby
