readme file

last modification: 11 Mar 2014

The tar archive files in these pages contain sets of isochrone for additional metallicities computed by interpolation amongst the BaSTI scaled-solar, metallicity grid points.

These interpolated isochrones are now available for the following metallicities: Z= Z=0.00015, 0.0002, 0.00045, 0.0075, 0.00145, 0.0029, 0.0057, 0.014, 0.0217

We employed a spline interpolation over the whole metallicity range to calculate isochrones in the H-R diagram. The luminosity, effective temperature and mass distribution along each isochrone, as obtained from the interpolation, have been then used to predict magnitudes in the Johnson-Cousins, Stroemgren, and Sloan filters (we refer to the main BaSTI pages for details about the source of the adopted bolometric corrections). Additional passbands are available upon request.

The "non-canonical" (including main sequence convective core overshooting) isochrones are available for two assumptions about the mass loss efficiency: eta=0 (no mass loss) and 0.4 (the standard option in the BaSTI archive).

Our best regards!!!
