megabeast is a Bayesian model that fits ensembles of BEAST results for single stars to derive stellar population and dust/star geometry parameters. Thus, the combination of the BEAST and megaBEAST is a Hierarchical Bayesian model. The goal is to create maps of stellar and dust parameters of galaxies (e.g., A(V) or stellar age).
