Understanding the trends in the Bulge of the Milky Way

I present a model that helps understand the trends of the Milky Way’s bulge, including their age, kinematics, chemistry and distributions.  I conclude that the bulge of the Milky Way formed largely in situ, whereas only about 1% of stars were accreted.  I also demonstrate that there are hints that the MW bulge cannot be young.
