D. Star Formation Rate

Two formats are possible
1. Provinding n sampling points: n, t[1->n], SFR[1->n],  (max n=20; t(n) is the present age (in Gyr) of the system)
2. Exponencial law of the form SFR=exp(t/-β): 1, T, β (T is the present age (in Gyr))

E. Metallicity Law

E.1) Defined by sampling points
Lower or unique law
Upper law (optional)
n, t[1->n],  Z[1->n] (max n=20, 0 to define
law by physical parameters: see below)
n, t[1->n],  Z[1->n] (max n=20, 0 to ignore)
     
    


E.2) Defined by physical parameters (all parameters 0 to ignore)
