Adaptive Refinement Tree

(ART)
(algorithm-type for solving n-body problem)

Adaptive Refinement Tree is a method for solving the N-Body Problem, specifically for Cosmological simulations using a cubic grid meshed structure. It uses Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) and Multilevel Relaxation. It can be parallelized.

ART and Adaptive Refinement Tree is also the name of a Code from 1997 to do this.
