Two Body Relaxation in Simulated Cosmological Haloes

  • Amr A. El-Zant
  • Published 2005


This paper aims at quantifying discreetness effects, born of finite particle number, on the dynamics of dark matter haloes forming in the context of cosmological simulations. By generalising the standard calculation of two body relaxation to the case when the size and mass distribution are variable, and parametrising the time evolution using established… (More)
