In this review we discuss cosmologicalN-body codes with a special emphasis on particle mesh codes. We present the mathematical model for each component ofN-body codes. We compare alternative methods for computing each quantity by calculating errors for each of the components. We suggest an optimum set of components that can be combined to reduce the overall errors inN-body codes.
