We present a new model for computing the spectral evolution of stellar populations at ages between 1 x 10 5 and 2 x 10 1 0 yr at a resolution of 3 A across the whole wavelength range from 3200 to 9500 A for a wide range of metallicities. These predictions are based on a newly available library of observed stellar spectra. We also compute the spectral evolution across a larger wavelength range, from 91 A to 160 μm, at lower resolution. The model incorporates recent progress in stellar evolution… 
We present Hubble Space Telescope blue spectra at intermediate spectral resolution for the nuclei of 23 nearby disk galaxies. These objects were selected to have nebular emission in their nuclei and
Single stellar populations in the near-infrared - II. Synthesis models
We present unresolved single stellar population synthesis models in the near-infrared (NIR) range. The extension to the NIR is important for the study of early-type galaxies, since these galaxies are
Evolutionary stellar population synthesis at high spectral resolution: optical wavelengths
We present the single stellar population (SSP) synthesis results of our new synthetic stellar atmosphere models library with a spectral sampling of 0.3 A, covering the wavelength range from 3000 to
New insights into the stellar content and physical conditions of star-forming galaxies at z = 2-3 from spectral modelling
We have used extensive libraries of model and empirical galaxy spectra [assembled, respectively, from the population synthesis code of Bruzual and Charlot and the fourth data release of the Sloan
The stellar populations of starburst galaxies through near-infrared spectroscopy
We study the central (inner few hundred parsecs) stellar populations of four starburst galaxies (NGC 34, 1614, 3310 and 7714) in the near-infrared (NIR), from 0.8 to 2.4 μm, by fitting combinations
PopStar I: evolutionary synthesis model description
We present new evolutionary synthesis models for simple stellar populations for a wide range of ages and metallicities. The models are based on the Padova isochrones. The core of the spectral library
The ages and metallicities of galaxies in the local universe
We derive stellar metallicities, light-weighted ages and stellar masses for a magnitude-limited sample of 175 128 galaxies drawn from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Two (SDSS DR2). We
A Population of Massive and Evolved Galaxies at z ≳ 5
We report results from a search for massive and evolved galaxies at z ≳ 5 in the GOODS southern field. Combining HST ACS, VLT ISAAC, and Spitzer IRAC broadband photometric data, we develop a color
Detailed studies of the stellar populations of intermediate-redshift galaxies can shed light onto the processes responsible for the growth of the massive galaxy population in the last 8 billion
The star formation histories of galaxies in the sloan digital sky survey
We present the results of a MOPED analysis of ∼3 × 10 5 galaxy spectra from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 3 (SDSS DR3), with a number of improvements in data, modelling and analysis


Evolutionary Stellar Population Synthesis at 2 Å Spectral Resolution
In this paper we develop an evolutionary stellar population synthesis model to predict spectral energy distributions (SEDs) for single-age, single-metallicity stellar populations (SSPs) at resolution
Synthetic properties of starburst galaxies
We present the results of an extensive grid of evolutionary synthesis models for populations of massive stars. The parameter space has been chosen to correspond to conditions typically found in
Integrated Near-Infrared Colors of Star Clusters: Analysis of the Stochastic Effects on the Initial Mass Function
In this paper we examine the influence of stochastic effects on the integrated near-infrared light of star clusters with ages between 7.5 < log t < 9.25. To do this, we use stellar evolution models
The stellar content of the nuclear regions of Sc galaxies
The stellar content of the nuclear regions of seven nearby Sc galaxies has been determined by means of population syntheses utilizing narrow-band spectrophotometric observations covering the

We present a detailed analysis of the spectroscopic catalog of galaxies in 10 distant clusters from Dressler et al. We investigate the nature of the different spectral classes defined by Dressler et

Empirical fitting functions are presented that model the behavior of 11 strong atomic and molecular features in the spectra of Galactic G and K stars. The functions express the strength of spectral

Photographic image-tube spectra in the wavelength interval 3400--4500 A have been obtained for 12 elliptical galaxy nuclei and for a number of Galactic globular and open clusters in integrated light.
We present a new model for computing the effects of dust on the integrated spectral properties of galaxies, based on an idealized description of the main features of the interstellar medium (ISM).

The evolution of the V − K colours of single stellar populations
ABSTRA C T Models of evolutionary population synthesis of galaxies rely on the properties of the so-called single stellar populations (SSP). In this paper, we discuss how the integrated near-infrared
