Update No.1: sent 27/7/1

During IAU208 at Tokyo there
was some discussion of the

specification of the model, and the result is summarised on the web

page http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/people/douglas/kyotoII/kyotoII.html

Discussion on this is still open.
I am working on creating
a list of initial conditions.

##
Update No.2: sent 6/8/1

I have now placed a provisional
list of masses, coordinates

and velocities on the web page

http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/~douglas/kyotoII/kyotoII.html

I have also added links to a detailed description of how this was

generated, and what I have done to check it.
If any of you have a little
time to consider the matter,

please pay attention to the second last point on the page

http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/~douglas/kyotoII/ic.html, where I analyse

the distribution of semi-major axes. (There is a link to a plot
of

this distribution further up the page.) I am not quite convinced
by

my explanation of the character of the distribution at very small

semi-major axis.

##
Update No.3: sent 3/9/1

I have altered the recommended output interval from 1Gyr to

0.5Gyr. This follows results from an unconfirmed partial calculation

(inert binaries, no stellar evolution) which implied a considerably

shorter life for the cluster than anticipated.
Please do not forget to inform
me about your completed

calculations, so that they can be added to the table on the web page.

##
Update No.4: sent 5/2/2

According to the timetable for this
project, results of

completed calculations were to be put online in February 2002.
I have

now done this, using as much detail as each collaborator has sent me.
The number of runs is still
small, and the number of full runs

(without simplification) is smaller still. I hope these results
and

this e-mail will stimulate further work on this problem in the next

three or four months.
