Modeling the Pan-Spectral Energy Distribution of Starburst Galaxies. IV. The Controlling Parameters of the Starburst SED

Groves, Brent; Dopita, Michael; Sutherland, Ralph; Kewley, Lisa; Fischera, Jörg; Leitherer, Claus; Brandl, Bernhard R; van Breugel, Willem Johannes Maria


We combine the stellar spectral synthesis code Starburst99, the nebular modeling code MAPPINGS III and a one-dimensional dynamical evolution model of H II regions around massive clusters of young stars to generate improved models of the spectral energy distribution (SED) of starburst galaxies. We introduce a compactness parameter, C, which characterizes the specific intensity of the radiation field at ionization fronts in H II regions and which controls the shape of the far-infrared (IR) dust...[Show more]
