Doug Hamilton's Home Page

I am a professor in the Astronomy Department at the University of Maryland's College Park campus (UMD requires that I post this warning here). My Research Interests are focussed on planetary science, orbital dynamics, and the origin of the solar system. You can investigate these areas yourself in my online Astronomy Workshop and with the sophisticated N-body integrator HNBody written by K. Rauch and D. Hamilton! Here are descriptions of the Courses That I Teach, my CV, a list of my Scientific Publications, and links to some good Astronomy Stuff. Did I promise you some data? Check my FTP site.

One of our Calar Alto images of Shoemaker-Levy 9's impact into Jupiter debuted in 1999 on Germany's first holographic stamp! Take a look at our other Jupiter Images & Movies.
