AbstractAs a new post-doc of the Physics department, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself scientifically. I will discuss my work on "applied dynamics", in which I use the AMUSE framework to model dense stellar systems. The main focus of my talk is more theoretical, as I will discuss the high-precision N-body code, Brutus, and its application to converged N-body solutions and understanding the role of chaos in N-body systems.
