THOT Stellar Dating

This is  the website for the Scientific Project “Comprehensive code for stellar dating and analysis of exoplanetay systems observed by direct imaging”, alias THOT Project.  The main Goal is to get a precise Stellar dating.

About THOT Project

THOT is an European Union Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action. Dr. Andrés Moya Bedón leads the project at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Prof. William J. Chaplin. THOT is framed in the field of stellar dating and will develop a program to score the most precise stellar ages possible using the best knowing techniques, and considering the intro data uncertainties.
