A Fast Algorithm for Particle Simulations *

  title={A Fast Algorithm for Particle Simulations *},
  author={Leslie Greengard and Vladimir Rokhlin},
We restrict our attention in this paper to the case where the potential (or force) at a point is a sum of pairwise An algorithm is presented for the rapid evaluation of the potential and force fields in systems involving large numbers of particles interactions. More specifically, we consider potentials of whose interactions are Coulombic or gravitational in nature. For a the form system of N particles, an amount of work of the order O(N 2) has traditionally been required to evaluate all… CONTINUE READING
