Abstract

The auhors apply their new "hybrid" stellar dynamical computer code to the gravitational collapse and post collapse evolution of a globular cluster, in the approximation of point particles of initially equal mass and for a time equal to twice the time to collapse. Among the results is the formation of a hard central binary system, reversal of core collapse and expansion due to the heat input from this binary, ejection of the binary from the core, and recollapse of the core.
