Simulum deals with different simulations of star movements
and their visualizations. At first it looks at the projection and
accumulation of star brightness. In actually doing this it
distributes stars among a three dimensional figure. To get a
nice effect it combines the photographic image production
with a moving view point. So the outcome is the visual
impression of flying through a star field. Secondly it studies
different algorithms of particle movements and clustering.
The primary approach uses a combination of Newton's
gravitational law, energy, and impulse conservation. At all
these stages an highly dynamic view of the processes is able
to be produced.
