Population Synthesis and the Diagnostics of High-Redshift Galaxies

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 274)


The effect of redshift on the observation of distant galaxies is briefly discussed emphasizing the possible sources of bias in the interpretation of high-z data. A general energetic criterion to assess physical self-consistency of evolutionary population synthesis models is also proposed, for a more appropriate use of this important tool to investigate distinctive properties of primeval galaxies.
