Abstract / Description:We have assessed how well stellar parameters
(Teff, log g and [M/H]) can be
retrieved from low-resolution dispersed images to
be obtained by the DIVA satellite. Although DIVA
is primarily an all-sky astrometric mission, it
will also obtain spectrophotometric information
for about 13 million stars (operational limiting
magnitude V =~ 13.5 mag). Constructional studies
foresee a grating system yielding a dispersion of
=~ 200 nm/mm on the focal plane (first spectral
order). For astrometric reasons there will be no
cross dispersion which results in the overlapping
of the first to third diffraction orders. The
one-dimensional, \emph{position related}
intensity function is called a DISPI (DISPersed
Intensity). We simulated DISPIs from synthetic
spectra taken from Lejeune et al.
(\cite{basel97}) and Lejeune et al.
(\cite{basel98}) but for a limited range of
metallicites, i.e. our results are for [M/H] in
the range -0.3 to 1 dex. We show that there is no
need to deconvolve these low resolution signals
in order to obtain basic stellar parameters.
Using neural network methods and by including
simulated data of DIVA's UV telescope, we can
determine Teff to an average accuracy
of about 2
