the apparent photometry in the selected system.
For the moment, there is no positional information but for the
distance modulus. Binaries are presented by single entries containing
the physical parameters of the primary plus the photometry for the
entire system. Future TRILEGAL versions will improve upon these points.
Example of output fields:
#Gc logAge [M/H] m_ini logL logTe logg m-M0 Av m2/m1 Mbol U B V ...

Gc: the Galactic component:
1=thin disc, 2=thick disc, 3=halo, 4=bulge, 5=additional object;
logAge: log10 of age in years;
[M/H]: initial metallicity respect to the Sun's;
m_ini: initial mass in Msun;
logL: log10 of luminosity in Lsun;
logTe: log10 of effective temperature in K;
logg: log10 of surface gravity in c.g.s. units;
m-M0: absolute distance modulus;
Av: extinction in the V-band;
m2/m1: mass ratio for binaries (=0 for single stars);
Mbol: apparent bolometric magnitude;
remaining columns: apparent magnitudes in the several pass-bands;
Mact: actual mass in Msun.
Different kinds of stars can be easily recognised by their population and physical parameters, e.g. white dwarfs have logg>7, brown dwarfs have m_ini<0.08, cool giants (M and C-types) have logTe<3.4 && logg<2, etc.
