J/A+A/396/513     Stellar Rotation in the Orion Nebula Cluster   (Herbst+, 2002)

Stellar rotation and variability in the Orion Nebula Cluster. Herbst W., Bailer-Jones C.A.L., Mundt R., Meisenheimer K., Wackermann R. <Astron. Astrophys. 396, 513 (2002)> =2002A&A...396..513H
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; Keywords: open clusters and associations: individual (Orion Nebula Cluster) stars: pre-main sequence - stars: rotation Description: Table 1 lists the 1562 stars in the Orion Nebula Cluster brighter than I=20mag on which we did photometry. It contains information on the position, brightness and variability of these stars, as well as their closest companions. Table 2 lists the stars detected as periodic in this study and gives their brightness, period and a comparison with results of previous studies. Table 3 is a summary of observational data for all stars in the Orion Nebula Cluster with rotation periods reported here or in earlier studies. File Summary:

Global notes: Note (G1): Our ID number is identical to Hillenbrand (1997AJ....113.1733H) for numbers less than 10000 and represents an extension of her system for stars not included in her catalog (i.e. those with numbers exceeding 10000 in this table).
