Abstract

We develop and test a finite difference scheme for the Vlasov-Manev Equation in one space and one velocity dimension. The Manev correction to the Newtonian potential produces visible qualitative differences in the behaviour of steller systems; the most notable effect observed in this paper is a stabilisation of the separate identities of two Maxwellian concentrations at different locations.
