N-body Data Interchange Format

This e-mail exploder serves as a forum to discuss if particle pushers (N-body, SPH, PM, P3M etc.) need a format by which they can interchange their data, and if so, which one.

Mailing list

The email address
can be used to send and reply your thoughts about the data interchange format to. All mail will be archived and accessible with the usual browsers. Send mail to me ( teuben@astro.umd.edu ), if you want to be removed or added to this list. I've not automated neither of these two procedures, so it may take more than a few minutes to get this established.

Some background


In the course of the discussion we plan to maintain a small archive (currently limited by diskspace) where examples of personal as well as standardized formats will be archived.
