Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is a computational method for modeling fluids (Hydrodynamics) developed by Monaghan and Lucy in 1977. It represents fluids as dispersed particles with "smoothed" characteristics, and allowing them to flow. The Gadget-2 Astrophysical N-body simulator also includes SPH to model gas.
