Star-Formation Histories of Resolved Galaxies in the Local Volume

  • Alessandra Aloisi (a1)

Abstract

Color-magnitude diagrams of resolved stellar populations are the most powerful tool to derive the star formation histories of galaxies. In this review the method to infer star formation histories by comparing synthetic color-magnitude diagrams to deep, high-precision, multi-color photometry is briefly outlined, and our current knowledge of the star formation history of systems within the local Volume is summarized.
