III/63B Revised Catalogue of Rotational Velocities (Uesugi+ 1982)
Revised Catalogue of Stellar Rotational Velocities UESUGI A., FUKUDA I. <Department of Astronomy, Kyito Univ., Japan (1982)>
ADC_Keywords: Rotational velocities Description (prepared by Wayne H. Warren Jr., October 1983): The machine-readable "Revised Catalogue of Stellar Rotational Velocities" provides mean v.sin(i) data on the old Slettebak system (Slettebak 1949, 1954, 1955, 1956; Slettebak and Howard 1955) for 6472 stars. The catalog results from the review, analysis and transformation of 11460 data from 102 sources. Included in the computerized version are star identification (major catalog number, name if the star has one, or cluster identification, etc.), a mean projected rotational velocity, and a list of source references. This version of the machine-readable catalog is comprehensive and supersedes the earlier compilation of Uesugi and Fukuda (1970). File Summary:

Historical Notes: * October 1982, ADC/NSSDC (Wayne H. Warren Jr.) A magnetic tape containing the "Revised Catalogue of Stellar Rotational Velocities" was received from the Astronomical Data Center, Japan, on 4 March 1983. Minor modifications, as described below, were made to the data file in order to effect a more homogeneous format consistent with other computerized catalogs. 1. The HD field contained a zero for every non-HD star; these were converted to blanks. 2. The abbreviations "BD", "CD", and "CP" were added to Durchmusterung (DM) numbers where they were absent. The abbreviation CP already occurred for CPD stars in the zones -22 degrees to -52 degrees where CD numbers are ordinarily used (following the HD convention). An unknown character (not in the published version) occurred in the Name field after all zone numbers for DM identifications. All occurrences of this character were changed to blanks. * October 1991: catalogue prepared (Lee E. Brotzmann) for the "Selected Astronomical Catalogs" Vol. 1 CD-ROM, directory: /spectro/rotvel * September 1995: catalogue documentation standardized at CDS Acknowledgments: Appreciation is expressed to K. Sadakane of Osaka University for personally transmitting our request for a copy of the tape to the Astronomical Data Center, Japan, and to Y. Terashita and A. Hayashi for preparing and supplying the magnetic tape. References: Fukuda, I. 1982, Publ. Astron. Soc. Pacific 94, 271. Slettebak, A. 1949, Astrophys. J. 110, 498. Slettebak, A. 1954, Astrophys.
