The GRAPE Project
January/February 2006 (vol. 8 no. 1)
pp. 30-40
Junichiro Makino, University of Tokyo
The goal of the Gravity Pipe (GRAPE) project is to accelerate astrophysical N-body simulations. Because almost all computing time is spent evaluating the gravitational force between particles, we can greatly accelerate many N-body simulations by developing a specialized hardware system for the force calculation.
