    planet formation requiring for example mechanisms to create the intricate and disturbed structure in the cometary disk beyond Neptune and to affect not only the eccentricities shapes of orbits but to induce spiralling inward or outward of planets in our own system as well as those around other stars It is still widely believed however that the cores of most planets are formed from the accumulation of much smaller bodies planetesimals reminiscent of present day comets and asteroids Due to the generally chaotic nature of their dynamics the currently most powerful theoretical method for understanding the formation and dynamical evolution of such systems is to construct computer models to numerically follow the orbits of large numbers of gravitationally interacting bodies for millions to billions of years including the effects of interactions with the gas disk and or physical collisions among the bodies Many of the problems I am studying with my graduate students and international collaborators utilize a very efficient computer software package called SWIFT developed by H Levison SouthWest Research Institute and me and widely used internationally We are incorporating a variety of methods to more efficiently model the interaction of large bodies protoplanets with a population of smaller

    Astrophysics 2016 Winter Term QUARG The Queen s University Astronomy Group KRA The Kingston Ringette Association My Astronomical Interests A Personal Profile My Research Interests Globular Star Clusters Observational Cosmology Galaxy Formation Globular clusters containing the oldest known stars may date from the earliest formation stages of galaxies shortly after the Big Bang Their chemical compositions dynamics and spatial distributions are therefore important diagnostics for our understanding of the chemical and dynamical evolution of galaxies We are analyzing the globular cluster systems associated with external galaxies and elucidating their photometric and spatial properties Globular clusters are the earliest formed components of galaxies and their nature and distribution will provide clues into the complex subject of galaxy formation and enrichment This area of research has benefitted enormously from recent technological developments Many of the major observatories worldwide are now equipped with multi object spectroscopic systems which allow us to acquire spectra for literally hundreds of the star clusters which surround external galaxies in a single long exposure rather than turning the telescope from one target to the next in painstaking traditional fashion This breakthrough has allowed us to study the dynamical state of the swarms of globular clusters which orbit galaxies
