Stellar Populations with JWST: the Beginning and the End
Publication date: 15 November 2009
Authors: Meixner, M., et al.
Journal: JWST White Paper
We discuss the recent progress on stellar populations provided by the influx of high sensitivity infrared photometry measurements using the Spitzer SAGE survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud as an example. We discuss the important role JWST will play in expanding such studies out to the local volume of galaxies (~10 Mpc) and its synergy with concurrent missions. In addition to observational capabilities, we will need theoretical tools to further this field in the next decade.Link to publication
