MWFitting – Stellar population synthesis applied to fit structural parameters of the Milky Way – Adriano Pieres (UFRGS)

August 29, 2018: 12:30 - 13:30

In this talk I present the MWFitting, an approach using TRILEGAL and PADOVA stellar models to fit the thick disk and halo of the Galaxy, taking as data the DES-DR1 and SDSS-DR14. Big data is a challenge in the current status of Astronomy and this approach is a representative example in handling that, ingesting 20k square degrees into the sky and ~97M sources. The results and simulations of this powerful method are presented for both surveys, and perspectives for the method using oncoming surveys (as LSST) will be outlined.
