THOT: Dating stars

Life, planets, exoplanetary systems, stars, and our galaxy evolve with time, and the best and sometimes only way for understanding this evolution is dating stars. THOT is a Marie Curie Project devted to gathering and updating all the stellar dating techniques into a single computational tool. In this presentation, I will present some of the most promising techniques for stellar dating, and show the current main contributions of this project (estimation of stellar masses and radii, new chemical clocks, kinematic stellar dating, isochrone fitting, stellar activity, ...). I will also present the first versions of the computational tool we are developing for stellar aging.
