Evolution of asymptotic giant branch stars. II. Optical to far-infrared isochrones with improved TP-
We present a large set of theoretical isochrones, whose distinctive features mostly reside on the greatly-improved treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase.Expand
Theoretical isochrones in several photometric systems I. Johnson-Cousins-Glass, HST/WFPC2, HST/NICMOS, Washington, and ESO Imaging Survey filter sets
We provide tables of theoretical isochrones in several photometric systems. To this aim, the following steps are followed: (1) first, we re-write the formalism for converting synthetic stellarExpand
Star counts in the Galaxy - Simulating from very deep to very shallow photometric surveys with the TRILEGAL code
We describe TRILEGAL, a new populations synthesis code for simulating the stellar photometry of any Galaxy field. The code attempts to improve upon several technical aspects of star count models, by:Expand
A New Generation of PARSEC-COLIBRI Stellar Isochrones Including the TP-AGB Phase
We introduce a new generation of PARSEC-COLIBRI stellar isochrones that include a detailed treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase, and covering a wide range ofExpand
New theoretical yields of intermediate mass stars
The abundances predicted during the nal stages of the AGB with those observed in planetary nebu- lae in the Galactic disk are compared and show that the model with the aforementioned parameters is in good agreement with the observations. Expand
The influence of chemical composition on the properties of Cepheid stars. II - The iron content ⋆
Context. The Cepheid period-luminosity (PL) relation is unquestionably one of the most powerful tools at our disposal for determining the extragalactic distance scale. While significant progress hasExpand
The mid- and far-infrared colours of AGB and post-AGB stars
With the advent of space missions, like SPITZER and ASTRO-F, with sensitive detectors in the near- and mid-infra red covering a reasonable field-of-view and having a good spatial resolution, it willExpand
The red clump absolute magnitude based on revised Hipparcos parallaxes
Context. Over the past decade the use of the red clump (RC) as distance indicator has increased in importance as this evolutionary phase is well populated and a good local calibration exists. Aims.Expand
On the metallicity gradient of the Galactic disk
Aims. The iron abundance gradient in the Galactic stellar disk provides fundamental constraints on the chemical evolution of this important Galaxy component, however the spread around the mean slopeExpand
ESO imaging survey - Deep public survey: Multi-color optical data for the Chandra Deep Field South
This paper presents multi-passband optical data obtained from observations of the Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-S), located at 3 h 32 m , 2748 0 . The observations were conducted at the ESO/MPG 2.2 mExpand
