Abstract

I present SOLARIS a general purpose software package for doing N-body and planet formation simulations. SOLARIS is capable to (i) to follow the orbital evolution of the solar system's major planets and minor bodies, (ii) to study the dynamics of exoplanetary systems, and (iii) to study the early and later phases of planetary formation. The process to bring bodies with different epochs to one common epoch, i.e. synchronization is implemented. Apart from the Newtonian gravitational forces, aerodynamic drag force, and type I and II migration forces are also implemented. The code also includes a nebula model. To speed up the computation, SOLARIS treats particles with different interaction properties. Several two-body events are monitored, such as collision, ejection etc. Arbitrary chemical composition can be assigned to massive bodies and during collisions the new body's composition is based on the mergers. The input is given in XML to define the parameters in a well-structured and flexible way. SOLARIS is designed tobe versatile and easy to use, accepting initial conditions in either Cartesian coordinates or Keplerian orbital elements.
