ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Stars, dwarfs ; Photometry Keywords: open clusters and associations: individual (M37) - stars: low-mass, brown dwarfs - stars: rotation - stars: spots - stars: variables: other Abstract: In the course of conducting a deep (14.5≲r≲23), 20 night survey for transiting planets in the rich ∼550Myr old open cluster M37, we have measured the rotation periods of 575 stars, which lie near the cluster main sequence, with masses 0.2M≲M≲1.3M. This is the largest sample of rotation periods for a cluster older than 500Myr. Using this rich sample we investigate a number of relations between rotation period, color, and the amplitude of photometric variability. Description: The observations and data reduction procedure were described in detail in Papers I (J/ApJ/675/1233) and II (J/ApJ/675/1254). The primary time-series photometric observations were done using the r filter and consist of ∼4000 high-quality images obtained over 24 nights (including eight half-nights) between 2005 December 21 and 2006 January 21. The spectra were obtained on four separate nights between 2007 February 23 and 2007 March 12. File Summary:

Note (1): That the light curve could have had and still have been detected as a variable. Entries with no value correspond to light curves that would be selected as variable even when Ar,N=0.0. The model does not adequately describe the light curve in these cases.
