Poster #: Tobin Wainer – Star Cluster Mass Function Fitting Using Probabilistic Modeling

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Anil Seth

We measure the cluster mass function for 770 young star clusters in M31 whose ages and masses were derived through integrated light spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting. Although fits to integrated light observations lead to larger uncertainties than from other methods, a majority of extragalactic star cluster samples rely on integrated light fitting. We compare the integrated light SED mass function fitting results to the mass function results to those previously published.
