What is NEMO?
is an extendible Stellar Dynamics Toolbox. It has various
programs to create, integrate, analyze and visualize N-body like systems. In
addition there are various tools to operate on images, tables and orbits,
including FITS files to export/import to/from other astronomical data
reduction packages. We also advertise
other software packages ,
which try and solve similar problems.
Users and Programmers Guide is
an extensive (150 pages) manual. It's four major parts give
a general introduction, a cookbook with many examples, a
programmers guide and an appendix with many reference sections.
- The Survival Guide
is intended for the casual usual, who is familiar with
operating packages within UNIX.
- A summary of features.
- A Tutorial for the eager users
who want to see what you can do, and try out features.

- A set of UNIX manual pages, that acts as online reference guide, which
make X-windows browsers such as
very useful tools:

- NEMO: A Stellar Dynamics Toolbox ,
by Teuben (1994, PASJ, xxx, yyy) overviews the current state of
NEMO and introduces a proposal to use
FITS as a vehicle to interchange and archive NBODY data
(see also the QUESTIONNAIRE ).

The example program mentioned in
an NBODY BINTABLE .
Difficulties during installation are most likely resolved by consulting
Appendix G in the (rather large)
and checking last minute changes that are
discussed in the $NEMO/README file.
- A bootstrap
loader from our
anonymous ftp .
This small C-shell script , that you can
save ( Save As... in Mosaic) anywhere on your local disk,
and execute to bootstrap NEMO. For example,
will pick up the tar file from Maryland, and install a bootstrap
version of NEMO, including a few small programs, in a directory
called /usr/nemo and below.
- chmod +x bootstrap
- bootstrap nemo=/usr/nemo
tar file, that contains the
latest ( ) release.
