dc.description.abstract A computer cluster was built for the purpose of performing N-body simulation. The planned simulations are to study Dark Matter (DM) particles which have self-interactions which behave similarly to the Coulomb force. The cluster was made of two Apple iMacs. The cosmological simulation code GADGET-2 was used to run the simulations and TORQUE Resource Manager was used to manage cluster communication. The cluster and software are not limited to DM simulations, but could be used to simulate other exotic cosmologies.
