Summary

Evolves the frontmost simulation forward one time step.

Description

When you select this command, the frontmost simulation will evolve forward one time step.

While AstroGrav is calculating the next state of the system, the Evolve / Stop command is available for you stop the evolution, and the Evolve / Settings... command is available for you to change the time step. In many simulations though, the calculations will be completed in a fraction of a second, and you will not notice this.

The time that it takes AstroGrav to evolve the system through one time step is extremely variable, but depends mainly on the following factors.
