We present N-body models to complement deep imaging of the metal-poor core-collapsed cluster NGC 6397 obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope. All simulations include stellar and binary evolution in step with the stellar dynamics and account for the tidal field of the Galaxy. We focus on the results of a simulation that began with 100, 000 objects (stars and binaries), 5% primordial binaries, and Population II metallicity. After 16 Gyr of evolution, the model cluster has about 20% of the stars...[Show more]
