MLAPM is purely grid-based and uses an arbitrary number of particles (each having its individual mass). The interparticle forces due to gravitational interactions are computed by solving
Poisson's equation on a hierarchy of grids via Brandt's Multi-Grid algorithm. In high density regions the code places finer grids in a recursive manner that freely adapts to the actual particle
distribution; these grids can have arbitrary shape and entail an adaptive force softening during the course of the simulation.
