Population Synthesis and the Diagnostics of High-Redshift Galaxies
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.
