Aarseth, Henon & Wielen
( 1974A&A....37..183A ) compare different techniques
of integration. The appendix contains the recipe to construct
a Plummer sphere.
( 1993ApJS...86..389H )
discusses how to construct multi-component galaxies.
Makino & Aarseth
( 1992PASJ...44..141M ) introduce a new self-starting
fourth-order Hermite integrator.
McMillan & Aarseth
( 1993ApJ...414..200M ) introduce a new tree-based,
high-order integration scheme for the numerical
simulation of collisional N-body systems.
( 1993MNRAS.261..497S )
discusses various methods to
center a snapshot, and applies autocorrelation techniques to
Pfenniger & Friedli
( 1993A&A...270..561P )
discuss many computational issues: integration shcemes, periodic
orbits & their stability, etc.
