2.4 Simulation known issues

We summarize here the main known issues of GUMS/GOG 20 simulations :

  • RR Lyrae stars are missing.

  • In GOG, the number of outliers, both in astrometry and photometry, is larger than expected from the simulated errors.

  • Very young stars have wrong circular velocity, see the correction procedure proposed in Section 2.2.2.

  • Stars beyond the Galactic centre have a wrong velocity, see Section 2.2.2.

  • Wrong extrapolation of the asymmetric drift, affecting a few thin disk stars, see Section 2.2.2.
