We have managed to generate an abstract simplex solar hierarchy. This abstract hierarchy contains no geometric data, only a binary tree of orbital nodes. We wish now to translate this abstract tree into a series of legitimate Orbital Elements, whose ellipses we want to render to screen.

The "Solar Hierarchy" of a solar system in PISES describes how the various stars of an N-ary solar system arrange themselves. If this seems like it might be an unsolvable, n-body gravitational problem that would require warehouses full of supercomputers to model with even vague realism, it absolutely is. However, it turns out that most N-ary solar systems arrange themselves in such a way that can be simplified to a series of very manageable, idealistic 2-body problems.
