Maya Open Lab
The Maya project is currently in a start-up phase, as
described in our
newly revised five-year plan.
Full information about the Maya project can be found in
the Development Series.

- Name: Maya
- Title: The Maya Open Lab For Dense Stellar Systems
The Maya project is documented in the Maya Development Series,
centered around dialogues between two astrophysicists, Alice and
Bob, who are developing the Kali code for simulating dense stellar
systems. In the process, they construct an open lab, Maya, to set
up initial conditions, run the Kali code, and analyze the results.
The Maya School Series provides students with self-study material,
as a more compact way to learn how to model dense stellar systems.
