Abstract

The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST, i.e. Guoshoujing Telescope) has finished its pilot survey (from October 2011 to June 2012). With about 3000 galaxy spectra collected during the pilot survey, we are planning to analyze the stellar populations of these galaxies in two different ways respectively. One is Lick indices (such as Hβ, Mgb, 〈Fe〉 etc., Worthey et al. 1994), which are not sensitive to the flux calibration, and another one is the full optical spectra fitting (Chen et al. 2009, 2010). Then we can evaluate the affects of flux calibration errors on stellar population analysis by comparing the results of the two methods′. Here we briefly show the early experiments aiming to test the consistency and/or difference between the two methods.
