Abstract
The last chapter is dedicated to the compilation of the results and the discussion about the success of - but also about the problems that have arisen during - and in part also survived - this work. The main goal of this thesis was, firstly, to convert the stellar parameters given by galaxy models into observables, and then to compare these theoretical stellar distributions in different viewing directions with real observational data to check, if it is possible to find a best-fitting galaxy model for our MilkyWay. To do so, we transformed the physical parameters, i.e. the stellar mass, current age and constant chemical abundance of each star in a certain viewing...
