This article describes the advances on the design, implementation, and evaluation of efficient algorithms for self-gravity simulations in astronomical agglomerates. Three algorithms are presented and evaluated: the occupied cells method, and two variations of the Barnes & Hut method using an octal and a binary tree. Two scenarios are considered in the evaluation: two agglomerates orbiting each other and a collapsing cube. Results show that the proposed octal tree Barnes & Hut method allows improving the performance of the self-gravity calculation up to 100 with respect to the occupied cell method, while having a correct numerical accuracy. The proposed algorithms are efficient and accurate methods for self-gravity simulations in astronomical agglomerates.
