The value of this book is its many Very Clear descriptions of Galactic and extragalactic phenomena: the stellar populations and ages of star clusters ; systems of multiple Globular Star Clusters belonging to galaxies ; stellar populations within the Milky Way and nearby galaxies ; stars in the halo and disk components of our Galaxy ; the chemical evolution of galaxies, etc.5/5(1).

Stellar populations as building blocks of galaxies: proceedings of the th [i.e. st] Symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in La Palma, Tenerife, Spain, December[Alexandre Vazdekis; Reynier Peletier; International Astronomical Union.

One approach to learning about stellar populations is to study them at three different levels of resolution. First in our own Galaxy; secondly from nearby galaxies where stars can still be resolved; and thirdly in remote galaxies in which the stellar population can only be studied in integrated light.

The stellar halos of galaxies encode their accretion histories. In particular, the median metallicity of a halo is determined primarily by the mass of the most massive accreted object. We use hydrodynamical cosmological simulations from the apostle project to study the connection between the stellar mass, the metallicity distribution, and the stellar age distribution of a halo and the identity Cited by: 2.

Here I will discuss how stellar evolution theory, together with observations in our Milky Way and Local Group, are used as building blocks to analyse these integrated stellar populations.

Topics include stellar evolution modeling, nucleosynthesis and chronology, analysis of HR diagrams of composite-resolved stellar populations in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies, and the integrated properties and chemical and spectro-photometric evolution of galaxies in.

Grebel, Eva K. Abstract. The characteristics and properties of the stellar populations and evolutionary histories of Local Group galaxies are summarized and compared to predictions of cosmological models. No clear signature of the re-ionization epoch is observed; in particular, there is no cessation of star formation activity in low-mass dwarf galaxies at the end of re-ionization.

Stars are the building blocks of galaxies. Research on stellar populations is the study of the different generations of stars which make up a galaxy. This is the principal way in which we determine the life history of galaxies. Astronomers use the term "stellar population" to refer to a single generation of stars characterized by a common age and chemical composition.

A galaxy can be composed of a large number of individual populations. Small stars are vital to dispersing the building blocks of life The new research sheds light on how small stars help breathe life into the universe.

Here I will discuss how stellar evolution theory, together with observations in our Milky Way and Local Group, are used as building blocks to analyze these integrated stellar populations.

Modern stellar population synthesis assumes that the stellar populations in galaxies consist of a sum of Single Stellar Populations (SSP), building blocks of more complex stellar populations, entities that consist of all stars born at the same time, with the same metallicity.

For example, galaxies do not consist only of A-stars of 2 solar mass. Comment: 4 pages, 2 figures, Proceedings of the IAU Symp. "Stellar Populations as Building Blocks of Galaxies", held in La Palma in Decembereds.

Peletier &. The building blocks of galaxies: a galaxies toolkit. Basic idea here is to communicate some of the methods that people use to study different components of galaxies. This is a very active field, so it is hard to give any final results.

Surveys of the Milky Way (MW) and M31 enable detailed studies of stellar populations across ages and metallicities, with the goal of reconstructing formation histories across cosmic time.

These surveys motivate key questions for galactic archaeology in a cosmological context: when did the main progenitor of a MW/Mmass galaxy form, and what were the galactic building blocks that.

The Building Blocks of the Universe Galaxies are vast cosmic islands of stars, gas, dust, and dark matter held together by gravity.

Hubble’s keen eye has revealed intricate details of the shapes, structures, and histories of galaxies — whether alone, as part of small groups, or within immense clusters. Abstract Stellar populations, building blocks of galaxies, are direct tracers of the star formation history, the chemical enrichment and the assembly of galaxies in the Universe.

They therfore allow us to understand how galaxies formed and evolved. Stellar Populations as building blocks of galaxies.

Written from the perspective that stars are the basic building blocks of clusters and galaxies, this book explores fairly rigorously how understanding the nuclear and evolutionary processes of stars affects.
