Within the framework of a large coordinated HST effort to study the star formation processes and history of several fields in the SMC, we present the detailed history of the young cluster NGC602. In particular, we explore the characteristics of the many candidate pre main sequence (PMS) stars. We combine a new set of PMS stellar tracks for the metallicity Z = 0.004 with a stellar population synthesis model that takes into account all evolutionary phases. The best star formation is searched by comparing observed and synthetic CMDs.

Abstract

Within the framework of a large coordinated HST effort to study the star formation processes and history of several fields in the SMC, we present the detailed history of the young cluster NGC602. In particular, we explore the characteristics of the many candidate pre main sequence (PMS) stars. We combine a new set of PMS stellar tracks for the metallicity Z = 0.004 with a stellar population synthesis model that takes into account all evolutionary phases. The best star formation is searched by comparing observed and synthetic CMDs.
