Binary stars are common and it is necessary to model stellar populations using binary stars. We introduce a method to model binary-star stellar populations quickly. The method can also be used to model single-star stellar populations. The method is called rapid stellar population synthesis and it is based on a statistical isochrone database of both single- and bianry-star stellar populations. The database can be obtained easily from the CDS (or on request to the authors) and can be used…
