Abstract

We present a mathematically advanced method for the determination of age and metallicity of individual members of globular cluster systems (CGSs) in galaxies by combining all the information inherent in broad-band color and Lick index measurements, and we present first results of our analysis of the GCS of the early type galaxy NGC 5128.
