Towards more reliable stellar evolutionary models for population synthesis of galaxies

Léo Girardi
Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova, INAF

I will review the present state of PARSEC+COLIBRI stellar evolutionary models and some persisting uncertainties that are still heavily affecting the predictions for the spectrophotometric evolution of galaxies, and the ongoing work to reduce these uncertainties using resolved populations in nearby galaxies. Topic to be discussed include the duration and chemical types of TP-AGB evolution, the role of fast rotators, the role of close binaries.
