PyPopStar: Single-age, single-metallicity populations generator

Abstract: PyPopStar generates single-age, single-metallicity populations (<i>i.e.</i>, star clusters). The software provides control over different parameters, including cluster characteristics (age, metallicity, mass, distance); total extinction, differential extinction, and extinction law; stellar evolution and atmosphere models; stellar multiplicity and Initial Mass Function; and photometric filters. PyPopStar can be used to create a cluster isochrone in many filters using different stellar models, generate a star cluster at any age with an unusual IMF and unresolved multiplicity, and make a spectrum of a star cluster in integrated light.
