Modelling the UV to sub-mm SED of starburst galaxies

Dopita, Michael


This paper reviews the theoretical modelling of starburst galaxies with particular emphasis on the importance of the gas-phase physics in determining the form of the continuum SED and the emission line spectrum. Both line and continuum diagnostics have been used as star formation indicators. Here, we examine from the point of view of the theory how reliable each of these indicators may be, and to what physics of the galaxy they are sensitive, with the aim of decreasing the errors associated...[Show more]
