adaptive refinement tree

(ART)
(algorithm-type for solving n-body problem)

Adaptive refinement tree is a computational method for solving the N-body problem, specifically for cosmological simulations. It uses a cubic grid meshed structure, with adaptive mesh refinement and multilevel relaxation. It is suitable for parallel computing.


ART, for Adaptive Refinement Tree, is also the name of a code from 1997 that uses the method.
