Nbody simulation of M67 and the origin of the Sun
Project: Dissertation › Individual research project
Find escaped stars from the cluster M67 via N-body simulation as M67 interacts with Giant Molecular Clouds (GMSs) as predicted by Gustafsson et al. (submitted). The orbits of these stars are then integrated in a constant Milky Way potential which consists of a bar/bulge, spiral arms, disk and halo. This will give information regarding the dynamics of the escaped stars of M67 and possibly give a clue to whether or not the Sun might have been born in M67.
