PySnacks 6: pyFIT3D/pyPipe3D: Resolved Properties of Stellar Populations and Ionized Gas with Galaxy IFS Data




Within the  Severo Ochoa Training Initiative of the IAA-CSIC we are offering short introductory practical courses about Python packages for astrophysical applications (PySnacks). We invite you to participate in the 10h course PySnacks 6: pyFIT3D/pyPipe3D.



The present course focuses on explaining the functionality of the pyFIT3D routine package and the pyPipe3D pipeline, and their practical use in deriving spatially resolved properties of stellar populations (using the population synthesis method) and ionized gas in galaxies observed through integral field spectroscopy. This applies to both large surveys (e.g., CALIFA, MaNGA) and individual observations (WEAVE, MUSE). The course is predominantly practical, primarily aimed at young researchers and students with basic knowledge of the subject. A computer with Linux/Unix/Mac or similar operating system, with Python3 installed, is required, and preferably, the following package should be installed in advance:

This course is organized by Rubén Garcia Benito and it will be taught by Sebastián Sánchez (UNAM).

  • 4th March 2024 from 9:30h to 14:00h  at Salón de Actos
  • 5th March 2024 from 9:30h to 12:00h and 15:30h to 17:30h at Salón de Actos


The number of participants is up to 15 people. It will be in hybrid mode, but in person participation is encouraged.




Please register here before the 22nd February 2023. Members of the IAA-CSIC have preferential access.
