Numerical developments on the dynamical evolution of clusters with more stellar populations
Abstract
Moment equations are extended from one to more stellar populations within the framework of the Larson (1970) fluid dynamics approach. Each population is described by its own set of equations with appropriate collision terms. These terms contain quantities pertinent to all the other populations. The full set of equations is integrated simultaneously by computer. The computer program is optimized with respect to convergence speed.
