#### Abstract

The Galactica System is intended for resolving N-body interaction problems. It is based on a high-precision method for solving differential equations of motion of bodies whose interaction forces are inversely proportional to the squared distance. The differential equations of motion and their solution method are given in paper. The structure of the input file, the files of initial conditions and output files are described. The examples of these files for different solved tasks are presented. The actions of executable files are explained. The paper describes all the theoretical and practical issues so that even a novice researcher could use Galactica System in his/her works.
