Welcome back at the 2nd part of the n-body-problem series. With the first post we had a short view on the equations of motion we need to calculate the position in space of a point mass. This time we need to conclude our equations and create a minimum project setup. I would like to use CMake for project setup for two reasons.Read Full Article

I thought it would be a very nice idea to start my blog with a small project I wanted to do since a long time. A small tool/solver of the n-body-problem. It’s not just only the interest of solving a challenging mathematical problem with modern C++. I also love clean, concise and readable code, which is also something I would like to train and share with this project. You can find the empty repository setup at GitHub. I will always try to tag the end state of the repository after each post of this blog series.Read Full Article
So this is my first blog and I would like to share my experiences as a mechanical engineer in the world of software development. I will write on this blog on an irregular base about all different kind of topics I’m interested in, such as programming, team management or other topics.
