0. Preface

In this volume, Alice and Bob develop a robust and flexible ACS data format, and implement basic I/O modules, based on that format. The current version of this volume contains only half of the material that we plan to include here, in a future release.

[add reference to starlab, for hierarchical particle data structure idea]

0.1. Acknowledgments

Besides thanking our home institutes, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and the University of Tokyo, we want to convey our special gratitude to the Yukawa Institute of Theoretical Physics in Kyoto, where the first half of this volume was written, during a visit in May 2004, made possible by the kind invitations to both of us by Professor Masao Ninomiya.
