Theory in a Virtual Observatory
This page is a growing list of links to different type of theory data
that various researchers have made available. They do not always strive
for scientific completeness (often the best datasets are large surveys),
the aim here is width.

large list of Data and Archive Centers
- Web Infrared Tool Shed
(if you are Java enabled, you can
jump right into the models)
- Galaxy Evolution TOOL,
simulate the Chemical Evolution of a galaxy.
(Multiparametric virtual Instrument for GALaxy Evolution), including
- NEMO's NBODY archive, where
you can find a number of examples of Nbody data.
- Dubinsky's data
- SkyView, a Virtual Telescope.
- GC3 consortium
- MPA Numerical Cosmology
A grid of chemical evolution models along the Hubble Sequence
(example local copy in mde01)
CSC, a grid of NLTE Model Atmospheres. (see also:
- Kurucz data
(model atmosphere grids, opacities, etc.etc.)

A few examples existed in our local
N-Body archive, some
of them have now been converted to this TVO:
- S93: Sellwood (1993)'s
``Bar Model for the Galactic Bulge''.
- GCM94: (see also
1994MNRAS.271..317G: The fate of central black holes in merging galaxies.
- PST95, (see also
1995ApJ...449..508P), 2D polar-grid (PPM isothermal) hydro in a barred galaxy.
- DMH96, (see also
1996ApJ...462..576D): initial conditions for an M31-Galaxy(M0) encounter.
2000ApJ...530..530P): A Database of COBE-normalized Cold Dark Matter Simulations.
