Model of stellar population synthesis of the Galaxy

Information :

The Besançon Galaxy Model is back to operation on Monday April 17, 2017, 13:00 CEST (12:00 GMT). Further to a system problem, the computing cluster used to run simulations of the Besançon Galaxy Model had to be completely upgraded, requiring a major change in the batch job submission. We apologize for the long delay. Please do contact us in case of problem.

This version of the Model of stellar population synthesis of the Galaxy is fully described in the following publication:
A. C. Robin, C. Reylé, S. Derrière and S. Picaud. A synthetic view on structure and evolution of the Milky Way, 2003, Astron. Astrophys., 409:523 ADS (erratum: 2004, Astron. Astrophys., 416:157)

On December 6, 2004, a new version was enabled that allows to use the CFHT-Megacam photometric system. More informations are available here.
