The subject of stellar populations touches on almost every field of astronomy and astrophysics. As well as commemorating the 50th anniversary of the beginnings of the subject, this book brings together experts on all relevant parts of astrophysics to discuss the outstanding questions relating to the stellar population concept as an observational tool that provides a physical understanding of the galaxies.
