Mizar is an N-body gravitational simulator. Given a starting setup consisting of the masses, positions, and velocities of any number of objects (conceptually, planets and stars), Mizar calculates and draws how they subsequently move according to their velocities and the influence of each other's gravity.

* KDE 4.4.5
* Qt 4.6.2

Requirements to build:
* KDE 4.4.5 dev files (e.g., provided by kdelibs5-dev in Ubuntu 10.04)
* Qt 4.6.2 dev files (e.g., libqt4-dev on Ubuntu 10.04)
* libgsl (e.g., libgsl0-dev on Ubuntu 10.04)
* cmake
* gcc, g++ 4.4.3
* python 2.6

  • Any number of bodies.
  • Any number of display windows, showing the orbits from different angles and with different magnifications.
  • Define orbits using position and velocity (absolute or relative) or orbital elements (semi-major axis, eccentricity, etc.).
  • Multi-level undo/redo.
  • Adjust the speed of the animation (up to the limits of your computer's ability).
  • Specify the accuracy of the calculations (up to the limit of double-precision floating-point arithmetic).
  • (Limitation) All bodies are considered to be featureless spheres.
  • (Limitation) Newtonian gravity only, no general relativistic corrections.
