BACCHUS: Brussels Automatic Code for Characterizing High accUracy Spectra

Abstract: BACCHUS (Brussels Automatic Code for Characterizing High accUracy Spectra) derives stellar parameters (T<sub><i>eff</i></sub>, log <i>g</i>, metallicity, microturbulence velocity and rotational velocity), equivalent widths, and abundances. The code includes on the fly spectrum synthesis, local continuum normalization, estimation of local S/N, automatic line masking, four methods for abundance determinations, and a flagging system aiding line selection. BACCHUS relies on the grid of MARCS model atmospheres, Masseron's model atmosphere thermodynamic structure interpolator, and the radiative transfer code Turbospectrum (ascl:1205.004).
