What is STARLAB?
STARLAB is a software package for simulating the evolution of
dense stellar systems, and analyzing the resultant data. It is a
collection of loosely coupled programs, linked at the level of the UNIX
operating system, that share a common data structure, and can be
combined in arbitrarily complex ways to study the dynamics of star
clusters and galactic nuclei. Current improvements in both the quality
and the quantity of observational data, together with ongoing and
anticipated increases in available computational power, combine to make
this project both necessary and feasible.

Piet Hut to the Oct. 1992 workshop on Blue Stragglers, at the Space
Telescope Science Instiute, and contains a summary description of
starlab and some of its background. It is also available in
