AbstractWe have modeled the dynamical evolution of small stellar groups with N=6 components in the framework of the gravitational N-body problem, taking into account possible mergers of stars and ejection of single and binary stars. We study the influence of the initial global parameters of the systems (the mass spectrum, average size, virial factor) on their dynamical evolution. The distribution over states is analyzed for a time equal to 300 initial crossing times of the system. The… Expand
