Stellar Dynamics •Gravity is generally the only important force in astrophysical systems (and almost always a Newtonian approx. is OK) •Consider astrophysical systems which can be approximated as a self-gravitating “gas” of stars (~ point masses, since in most cases R open and globular star clusters, galaxies, clusters of.   Direct N-body simulations of star clusters in a realistic Milky Way-like potential are carried out using the code NBODY6. Based on these simulations a new relationship between scale size and galactocentric distance is derived: the scale size of star clusters is proportional to the hyperbolic tangent of the galactocentric distance. The half-mass radius of star clusters increases systematically Cited by:

Stellar dynamics involves determining the gravitational potential of a substantial number of stars. The stars can be modeled as point masses whose orbits are determined by the combined interactions with each other. Typically, these point masses represent stars in a variety of clusters or galaxies, such as a Galaxy cluster, or a Globular cluster. The open star clusters fall at the low-mass end of this progression. They comprise hundreds of gravitationally-bound stars in a volume of order 10 parsecs radius. They are important to astrophysicists because they provide some of the best star samples for testing stellar evolution theories. Open clusters are scattered throughout the Galactic disk.

Stars evaporate from star clusters. And in case of the disk clusters, those tidal shocks are provided by passing by giant molecular clouds, which tend to have masses like million solar masses. And they cannot give a little kick to the open cluster stars, which is why open clusters get dissolved so quick. Star cluster - Star cluster - OB and T associations: The chief distinguishing feature of the members of a stellar association is that the large majority of constituent stars have similar physical characteristics. An OB association consists of many hot blue-giant stars, spectral classes O and B, and a relatively small number of other objects. A T association consists of cooler dwarf stars, many.

The dynamical evolution of open star clusters has been studied successfully by numerical N-body simulations. We compare in detail the theoretically predicted lifetimes with those derived from the observed age distribution of open by: The last I.A.D.

The gravitational million-body problem is a model for understanding the dynamics of rich star clusters. This text describes the theory astronomers need for studying globular star clusters.

After introducing the million-body problem from various view-points, the book systematically develops the tools needed for studying the million-body problems in nature, and introduces the most important theoretical Format: Paperback.

The book contains the elaborated notes of lectures given at the 42 nd Saas-Fee Advanced Course “Dynamics of Young Star Clusters & Associations" by Cathie Clarke (University of Cambridge) who presents the theory of star formation and dynamical evolution of stellar systems, Robert Mathieu (University of Wisconsin) who discusses the kinematics.

Some of the discussion of photographing star clusters--which now can be done readily and surprisingly well with a smartphone adaptor--is a bit dated, but the rest of the book contains a wealth of information.

Star Clusters ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ASTRONOMY AND STROPHYSICS first major catalog that includes clusters is the NEW GENERAL CATALOG (NGC), listing clusters. The update to the NGC, the IC, contains another 30 clusters. There have been at least a couple of dozen other more or less systematic attempts to search for and catalog additional star clusters.

Star cluster, either of two general types of stellar assemblages held together by the mutual gravitational attraction of its members, which are physically related through common origin.

The two types are open (formerly called galactic) clusters and globular clusters. One of these objects is the open star cluster known as Messier 50 (aka. NGC ). Located at a distance of about 3, light-years from Earth, this object sits near the border between the Monoceros and Canis Major constellations.

It is described as a ‘heart-shaped’ figure. The diameters of globular star clusters range from 50 light-years to more than light-years. Open Clusters. Open clusters are found in the disk of the Galaxy. They have a range of ages, some as old as, or even older than, our Sun.

The youngest open clusters are still associated with the interstellar matter from which they formed. Moreover, the Milky Way starcloud M24 contains the open star cluster NGC (and several other, less conspicuous open clusters).

Note that the preceding list includes all star-forming nebulae in Messier's catalog, as each of them contains a very young open clusters, which have formed from the nebula's material in (astronomically) very recent.
