Simulum deals with different simulations of star movements and their visualizations. At first we look at the projection and accumulation of star brightness.

In actually doing this we have to distribute stars among a three dimensional figure. To get a nice effect we combine the photographic image production with a moving view point. So we get the visual impression of flying through a star field.

Secondly we will study different algorithms of particle movements and clustering. The primary approach will use a combination of Newton's gravitational law, energy and impulse conservation.

At all these stages an highly dynamic view of the processes could be produced and will lead at least to interesting screen savers...

What's New in This Release:
??? A huge refactoring phase took place.
??? Now the code is much better organized.
??? A simple gravity engine is included, so you can watch gravity at work.
??? It has now a nice GUI.
??? You can browse the simulation with your mouse.
??? The provided unsigned jar includes an applet that can directly be used by HTML pages; this release includes sample HTML pages.
??? You can also webstart the signed jar or start it with "java -jar lib/mulumis.jar".
