ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; X-ray sources Keywords: open clusters and associations: individual (Orion Nebula Cluster) - stars: flare - stars: magnetic fields - stars: pre-main sequence - stars: spots - X-rays: stars Abstract: We present a statistical analysis of simultaneous optical and X-ray light curves, spanning 600ks, for 814 pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars in the Orion Nebula Cluster. The aim of this study is to establish the relationship, if any, between the sites of optical and X-ray variability and thereby to elucidate the origins of X-ray production in PMS stars. Description: A complete description of our database of simultaneous X-ray and optical light curves is provided in Paper I, Stassun et al., 2006ApJ...649..914S. File Summary:
