Abstract: Much of our understanding of the nature of the interaction between the Magellanic Clouds and our own Galaxy has emerged from numerical simulations. Features like the Magellanic Stream, the inter-cloud region and the Wing are thought to be produced by the tidal interaction among the members of this triple system. Here I use a TreeSPH code to simulate self-consistently the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds orbiting a fixed potential representing our Galaxy.
