We use the ages, masses and metallicities of the rich young star cluster systems in the nearby starburst galaxies NGC 3310 and NGC 6745 to derive their cluster formation histories and subsequent evolution. We further expand our analysis of the systematic uncertainties involved in the use of broad-band observations to derive these parameters (Paper I) by examining the effects of a priori assumptions on the individual cluster metallicities. The age (and metallicity) distributions of both the… 
Star Cluster Formation and Evolution in Nearby Starburst Galaxies : II . 1 2003
We use the ages, masses and metallicities of the rich young star cluster systems in the nearby starburst galaxies NGC 3310 and NGC 6745 to derive their cluster formation histories and subsequent
Star Cluster Formation and Evolution in the Dwarf Starburst Galaxy NGC 1569
We analyse multi-wavelength Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of a large number of star clusters in the nearby (post-) starburst dwarf galaxy NGC 1569. Their spectral energy distributions
Young Star Clusters: Progenitors of Globular Clusters!?
Star cluster formation is a major mode of star formation in the extreme conditions of interacting galaxies and violent starbursts. Young clusters are observed to form in a variety of such galaxies, a
On the fraction of star clusters surviving the embedded phase
In this paper we derive ages and masses for 276 clusters in the merger galaxy NGC 3256. This was achieved by taking accurate photometry in four wavebands from archival Hubble Space Telescope images.
Massive Star Cluster Formation and Destruction in Luminous Infrared Galaxies in GOALS
We present the results of a Hubble Space Telescope ACS/HRC FUV, ACS/WFC optical study into the cluster populations of a sample of 22 Luminous Infrared Galaxies in the Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG
GEMINI SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEY OF YOUNG STAR CLUSTERS IN MERGING/INTERACTING GALAXIES. III. THE ANTENNAE
We present optical spectroscopy of 16 star clusters in the merging galaxies NGC 4038/39 (“the Antennae”) and supplement this data set with Hubble Space Telescope imaging. The age and metallicity of
Globular cluster formation in the context of galaxy formation and evolution
The formation of globular clusters (GCs) remains one of the main unsolved problems in star and galaxy formation. The past decades have seen important progress in constraining the physics of GC
THE ACS NEARBY GALAXY SURVEY TREASURY. X. QUANTIFYING THE STAR CLUSTER FORMATION EFFICIENCY OF NEARBY DWARF GALAXIES
We study the relationship between the field star formation and cluster formation properties in a large sample of nearby dwarf galaxies. We use optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope and from
HIERARCHICAL STELLAR STRUCTURES IN THE LOCAL GROUP DWARF GALAXY NGC 6822
We present a comprehensive study of the star cluster population and the hierarchical structure in the clustering of blue stars with ages ≲500 Myr in the Local Group dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822.

We report the discovery of four young, luminous, compact stellar clusters in the central region of the starburst spiral galaxy NGC 253. One cluster has an intrinsic M_v of about -15 or brighter, an
Deep Hubble Space Telescope Observations of Star Clusters in NGC 1275
We present an analysis of compact star clusters in deep Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 images of NGC 1275. B- and R-band photometry of roughly 3000 clusters shows a bimodality
Dynamical Evidence for a Massive, Young Globular Cluster in NGC 1569
Recent high-resolution observations with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) reveal that star clusters of extraordinary luminosity and compactness are commonly found in a variety of starburst systems.

The Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on board the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been used to obtain high-resolution images of NGC 3610, a dynamically young elliptical galaxy in a group environment.
How Many Young Star Clusters Exist in the Galactic Center?
We study the evolution and observability of young compact star clusters within ~200 pc of the Galactic center. Calculations are performed using direct N-body integration on the GRAPE-4, including the
