On the Semianalytical Two-Body Regularization in N-Body Simulations
Abstract: A two-body regularization for N-body problem based on perturbation theory for Keplerian problem is discussed. We provide analytical estimations of accuracy and conduct N-body experiments in order to compare it with state-of-the-art Hermite integrator. It is shown that this regularization keeps some features that allow overcoming KS-regularization in some particular cases.
