An analytic method to compute star cluster luminosity statistics

da Silva, Robert L; Krumholz, Mark; Fumagalli, Michele; Fall, S. Michael


The luminosity distribution of the brightest star clusters in a population of galaxies encodes critical pieces of information about how clusters form, evolve and disperse, and whether and how these processes depend on the large-scale galactic environment. However, extracting constraints on models from these data is challenging, in part because comparisons between theory and observation have traditionally required computationally intensive Monte Carlo methods to generate mock data that can be...[Show more]
