Using Galactic Archaeology to Probe the Physics of Type Ia Supernovae

Although it is generally well-accepted that Type Ia supernovae (SNe) are the thermonuclear explosions of white dwarfs, the dominant physical mechanism behind these explosions is still uncertain.

Synthetic photometry of star clusters that accounts for the stochastic sampling of the IMF and the ionized gas: analysis of GALAXEV-C models and HST observations

Low-mass (<1E4) star clusters contain a significant fraction of the stars in star-forming galaxies. In particular, star clusters with initial masses between 1E1 and 1E3 Msun contain the same total mass in stars as those with initial masses between 1E3 and 1E5 Msun.
