J/A+A/177/131  CaII and MgII excess flux density in cool stars  (Rutten, 1987)

Magnetic structure in cool stars. XII. Chromospheric activity and rotation of giants and dwarfs. Rutten R.G.M. <Astron. Astrophys. 177, 131 (1987)> =1987A&A...177..131R
ADC_Keywords: Stars, late-type ; Stars, dwarfs ; Stars, giant ; Magnitudes, absolute Keywords: stars: chromospheres of - stars: evolution of - stars: late-type - stars: rotation of Abstract: The relation between the CaII H and K line-tore flux density and rotation period is studied for a sample of 313 cool stars of luminosity classes ranging from II-III to V, and compared to similar relations for MgII h and k and soft X-ray.
