We have computed a grid of synthetic spectra in the wavelength range $\lambda\lambda$ 4600-5600 Å using revised model atmospheres, for a range of atmospheric parameters and values of [ $\alpha\mbox{-elements/Fe}] = 0.0$ and +0.4. The Lick indices Fe5270, Fe5335, Mgb and Mg 2 are measured on the grid spectra for FWHM = 2 to 8.3 Å. Relations between the indices Fe5270, Fe5335 and Mg 2 and the stellar parameters effective temperature $T_{\rm eff}, \log\; g$, [Fe/H] and [ $\alpha$/Fe] , valid in the range $4000 \leq T_{\rm eff} \leq 7000$ K, are presented. These fitting functions are given for FWHM = 3.5 and 8.3 Å. The indices were also measured for a list of 97 reference stars with well-known stellar parameters observed at ESO and OHP, and these are compared to the computed indices. Finally, a comparison of the indices measured on the observed spectra and those derived from the fitting functions based on synthetic spectra is presented.
