Abstract With the coming generation of instruments and telescopes capable of spectroscopy of high redshift galaxies, the spectral synthesis technique in the rest-frame UV and Far-UV range will become one of a few number of tools remaining to study their young stellar populations in detail. The rest-frame UV lines and continuum of high redshift galaxies, observed with visible and infrared telescopes on Earth, can be used for accurate line profile fitting such as Pvλλ1118, 1128, Ciiiλ1176, and… Expand
Fitting the integrated spectral energy distributions of galaxies
Fitting the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of galaxies is an almost universally used technique that has matured significantly in the last decade. Model predictions and fitting procedures haveExpand

Massive Stellar Content of Giant H II Regions in M33 and M101
Far-ultraviolet (900-1200 A) spectral synthesis of nine giant extragalactic H II regions in M33 and M101 is performed to study their massive stellar content. Several parameters are quantified,Expand
EFFECTS OF DUST GEOMETRY IN Lyα GALAXIES AT z = 4.4
Equivalent widths (EWs) observed in high-redshift Ly? galaxies could be stronger than the EW intrinsic to the stellar population if dust is present residing in clumps in the interstellar mediumExpand
