Galactic disk microlensing by LSST

Upcoming LSST survey gives an unprecedented opportunity for studying populations of intrinsically faint objects using microlensing technique. Large field of view and aperture allow effective time-series observations of many stars in Galactic disk and bulge. In this regard, we combine Galactic models (for $|b|<10^{\rm{\circ}}$) and simulations of LSST observations to study how different observing strategies affect the number and properties of microlensing events detected by LSST.
