In this paper, we combine the stellar spectral synthesis code STARBURST99, the nebular modeling code MAPPINGS IIIq, a one-dimensional dynamical evolution model of H II regions around massive clusters of young stars, and a simplified model of synchrotron emissivity to produce purely theoretical self-consistent synthetic spectral energy distributions (SEDs) for (solar metallicity) starbursts lasting ∼ 108 yr. These SEDs extend from the Lyman limit to beyond 21 cm. We find that two ISM parameters...[Show more]
