We present a Bayesian implementation of isochrone fitting in deriving stellar ages and masses, incorporating absolute K magnitude (MK) derived from 2MASS photometry and Gaia DR1 parallax and differentiation between initial bulk metallicity and present-day surface metallicity, with allowance for incorporating further constraints (e.g. asteroseismology) when available. As a test, we re-computed stellar ages and masses of ∼4000 stars in the solar neighbourhood from six well-studied literature...[Show more]
