N-Body Data Archive

Here we list a few sample datasets (snapshot), which have been kindly donated by the authors. Most of the data will be in a format described with the data itself. Some work is being done on defining an N-body Data Interchange Format for such data, where we also make some sample data available.

Other N-Body Data Archives (excluding animations) that we know about :

NOTE: To retrieve the data through a WWW browser, you probably need to turn on some kind of option Load To local disk before you click on the datasets themself. ASCII files have normamlly been compressed with the GNU gzip program for sake of efficiency. In the examples below I have assumed that the zcat program is the version that correctly uncompresses .gz or .Z files.
