Multi-scale, Multi-physics Software Frameworks
(in MODEST and Elsewhere)
During the last year we have begun to experiment with different
methods of tying together modules modeling stellar dynamics, stellar
evolution, and stellar collisions within a high-level programming
environment. First results of this effort can be found on the MUSE wiki page.
However, it is clear that integration of programs written in many
different languages, and describing many different complex physical
processes, is itself a very complex task, and not unique to our field.
We will invite experts with hands-on expertise in building frameworks
in different areas of computational science. Their presentations will
form the foundation for a group discussion of constructing frameworks
for modeling, analyzing, and visualizing dense stellar systems in
MODEST-7c will take place on September 15, 2006, in the Paul Peck Alumni Center of Drexel
University, Philadelphia. Admission is free, but please send e-mail
