Sengi: Interactive viewer for spectral outputs from stellar population synthesis models

Abstract: Sengi enables online viewing of the spectral outputs of stellar population synthesis (SPS) codes. Typical SPS codes require significant disk space or computing resources to produce spectra for simple stellar populations with arbitrary parameters, making it difficult to present their results in an interactive, web-friendly format. Sengi uses Non-negative Matrix Factorisation (NMF) and bilinear interpolation to estimate output spectra for arbitrary values of stellar age and metallicity; this reduces the disk requirements and computational expense, allowing Sengi to serve the results in a client-based Javascript application.
