Welcome to the AMUSE project
AMUSE is the Astrophysical Multipurpose Software Environment.
Our aim is to provide a software framework astrophysical simulations, in which existing codes from different domains, such as stellar dynamics, stellar evolution, hydrodynamics and radiative transfer can be easily coupled.
AMUSE uses Python to interface with existing numerical codes. The AMUSE interface handles unit conversions, provides consistent object oriented interfaces, manages the state of the underlying simulation codes and provides transparent distributed computing. On the examples page you can get a quick feel of how this works. AMUSE is free to download, use, and distribute and it comes with a wide selection of astrophysical simulation codes included.
AMUSE is a community effort with the main development by the AMUSE team at Leiden Observatory under supervision of Simon Portegies Zwart. Please join us buiding a cummunity for the next generation computational astrophysics framework. You can find us on google groups, http://groups.google.com/group/amusecode or on IRC at the #amuse channel on irc.freenode.net.
The easiest way to run AMUSE is to get one of the self-contained binary releases from the box on the right *or* you can install all the prerequisites and compile the source yourself, as described in the links below.
