Sensitivity analysis of hierarchical models for the ages of galactic halo white dwarfs

Abstract / Description:The ages of white dwarfs are of great importance in stellar evolution. Si et al. developed a novel approach to increase the precision of such estimates by combining multiple white dwarfs in a Bayesian hierarchical model. In this paper, we further investigate the robustness of the Bayesian hierarchical model by performing a simulation study.
