  • We present SPISEA (Stellar Population Interface for Stellar Evolution and Atmospheres), an open-source Python package that simulates simple stellar populations. The strength of SPISEA is its modular interface which offers the user control of 13 input properties including (but not limited to) the Initial Mass Function, stellar multiplicity, extinction law, and the metallicity-dependent stellar evolution and atmosphere model grids used. The user also has control over the Initial-Final Mass… CONTINUE READING
