Cosmological N-body simulations have become an essential tool for studying formation of large scale structure. These simulations are computationally challenging even though the available computing power gets better every year. A number of efficient algorithms have been developed to run large simulations with better dynamic range and resolution. We discuss key algorithms in this review, focusing on techniques used and their efficacy. N-body simulations solve a model that is an approximation of… CONTINUE READING
