Abstract

Using anisotropic Fokker-Planck models, we calculate the evolution of mass and luminosity functions of the Galactic globular cluster system. Our models include two-body relaxation, binary heating, tidal shocks, dynamical friction, and stellar evolution. We perform Fokker-Planck simulations for a large number of virtual globular clusters and synthesize these results to study the relation between the initial and present GCMFs.
