Streams out of a Cloud

Abstract

Stellar streams provide powerful constraints on the shape and structure of the Milky Way's dark matter halo. In this talk I will present a new particle cloud based algorithm for modelling stellar streams. The particle cloud method is computationally efficient while providing a good approximation to actual details of tidal stripping. I will demonstrate the algorithm's success in a number of test cases.
