This is a website for our 15-618 final project: Parallel Barnes-Hut Algorithm Implementations. We implemented the Barnes-Hut algorithm for 2D galaxy simulation with different approaches (pthreads, OpenMP) and compare their performance. We also build a simple visualization environment for visualizing the simulation results.

Here is a demo animation of a sample glaxy simulation produced by our code.
