Abstract / Description:The ESA satellite mission Gaia will acquire spectrophotometric observations of several million unresolved galaxies during its five years of operation. In order to implement a classification scheme for these observations we need to build a new library of galaxy spectra which covers the necessary parameter space. Using the evolutionary code PÉGASE.2 we have produced a library of 28885 synthetic galaxy spectra at zero redshift covering four general spectral types of galaxies over the wavelength range from 250 to 1050 nm, at a sampling of 1 nm or less. The library was also reproduced for four random values of redshift in the range of 0-0.2 and it is computed on a random grid of four key astrophysical parameters (3 for SFR and 1 for timescale of the infall of gas). The synthetic library was compared with various photometric and spectroscopic observations (e.g. from SDSS) and found in good agreement with them.
