Research Area: STELLAR POPULATIONS

Topics covered in this research area

Subject in this research area aim at understanding the stellar content of nearby star clusters and galaxies with the goal of understanding their formation and evolution history.

  • Resolved and unresolved star cluster (formation, stellar content, destruction)
  • Resolved stellar populations in the Local Group and nearby galaxies
  • Dwarf galaxies (stellar content and dynamics)
  • Nearby galaxies (integrated light, dynamics, central objects)
