      Hardware acceleration of n-body simulations for galactic dynamics 

      Cook, Todd A.; Kim, Hong-Ryul; Louca, Loucas S. (Affiliation: Rutgers Univ., Piscataway, NJ, USA, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Cook, Todd A.Rutgers Univ., Piscataway, NJ, USAUnited States, 1995)
      N-body methods are used to simulate the evolution and interaction of galaxies. These simulations are usually run on large-scale supercomputers or on very expensive full-custom hardare. This paper presents an alternative ...

      An interactive simulation to evaluate student understanding of moon phase formation 

      Constantinou, Constantinos P.; Evagorou, M. P.; Ttoffi, P. G. (Pedagogical Faculty of University of Ostrava, 2001)
      The development of student understanding of phases of the moon is notoriously difficult due to the spatial reasoning requirements posed by the relative motion of three celestial bodies. We have used the Greek version of ...
