Cavendish Education is an easy-to-use gravity simulator that solves the n-body problem. It accurately models gravitational interactions between an arbitrary number of objects. (For clarity, dynamics are restricted to the plane). You can create systems in Cavendish's intuitive graphical interface or write systems in Cavendish's scripting language - all saved files are plaintext format.
- Guaranteed energy and momentum conservation - Cavendish uses a fourth-order Runge-Kutta algorithm with adaptive time-stepping.
- Multiple restore points - restore a system to any past configuration! more...
