Theoretical modeling of star-forming galaxies. I. Emission-line diagnostic grids for local and low-metallicity galaxies

Levesque, E M; Kewley, Lisa; Larson, Kirsten


We use the newest generation of the Starburst99/Mappings code to generate an extensive suite of models to facilitate detailed studies of star-forming galaxies and their interstellar medium properties, particularly at low metallicities. The new models used include a rigorous treatment of metal opacities in the population synthesis modeling and more detailed dust physics in the photoionization code. These models span a wide range of physical parameters including metallicity, ionization parameter,...[Show more]
