4. Present programme

To be able to study evolutionary signatures of larger amounts of stars in the LMC Bar, we need observing material with excellent image quality. In addition, we need tools for reliable abundance investigations that are able to reach objects of intrinsic luminosity close to that of the Sun. We have chosen to work with the HST and Strömgren uvby photometry.

With these tools, we have initiated a study of metallicities and ages of field stars close to the turn-off point in the LMC Bar centre. Fainter stars are included for a study of the luminosity function.
