Numerical Color-Magnitude Diagram Analysis of SDSS Data and Application to the New Milky Way Satellites by J. T. A. de Jong et. al.

The authors applied MATCH (Dolphin, 2002[1] -note that the year is corrected) to M13, M15, M92, NGC2419, NGC6229, and Pal14 (well known globular clusters), and BooI, BooII, CvnI, CVnII, Com, Her, LeoIV, LeoT, Segu1, UMaI, UMaII and Wil1 (newly discovered Milky Way satellites) from Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to fit Color Magnitude diagrams (CMDs) of these stellar clusters and find the properties of these satellites.

An Isochrone Database and a Rapid Model for Stellar Population Synthesis by Li and Han

This paper emphasize the binary population: CMD fitting with the binary population synthetic model outperformed to the single population model. They used Hurley code (Hurley, Tout, and Pols (2002). Evolution of binary stars and the effect of tides on binary populations, MNRAS, 329(4), p.897-928). They mentioned that two color-color grids can disentangle the age-metallicity degeneracy via binary stellar populations. They fitted their isochrone database to M67 and NGC 1868 with the gT-grid and concluded that the database of binary stellar populations fitted the color magnitude diagrams better.
