There are two popular ways to speed up simulations of planet formation via increasing the collision probability: (i) confine motion to 2D, (ii) artificially enhance the physical radii of the bodies by an expansion factor. In this paper I have performed 100 simulations each containing 10 interacting bodies and computed the collision parameters from the results of the runs. Each run was executed for a lower and a higher accuracy parameter. The main goal is to determine the probability… 
Did Earth Eat Its Leftovers? Impact Ejecta as a Component of the Late Veneer
The presence of highly siderophile elements in Earth’s mantle indicates that a small percentage of Earth’s mass was delivered after the last giant impact in a stage of “late accretion.” There is

COLLISIONS BETWEEN GRAVITY-DOMINATED BODIES. I. OUTCOME REGIMES AND SCALING LAWS
Collisions are the core agent of planet formation. In this work, we derive an analytic description of the dynamical outcome for any collision between gravity-dominated bodies. We conduct
Making More Terrestrial Planets
The results of 16 new 3D N-body simulations of the final stage of the formation of the terrestrial planets are presented. These Nbody integrations begin with 150‐160 lunar-to-Mars size planetary

A numerical simulation of the formation of the terrestrial planets
A numerical simulation of the accumulation of the terrestrial planets was performed, starting with 200 lunar-size planetesimals distributed uniformly in a plane; these were placed in circular orbits
ON RUNAWAY GROWTH OF PLANETESIMALS
We present the results of three-dimensional N-body simulations of planetary accretion. We confirm that runaway growth is a dominant mode of planetary accretion in a three-dimensional system where
Evolution of Planetesimals. II. Numerical Simulations
We continue our investigation of the dynamical evolution and coagulation process of planetesimals. With a numerical N-body scheme, we simulate gravitational scattering and physical collisions among a
