Understanding EROS microlensing observations towards the Spiral Arms

Sohrab Rahvar

March 05, 2012

Abstract: I will introduce recent applications of the gravitational microlensing in extra-solar planet detection and testing Galactic models. Twenty-two microlensing candidates from EROS collaboration, towards the Spiral arms, is used to constrain the structure of disk, Galactic bar, dynamics of the stars and the stellar mass function.
