Poking the beehive from space: K2 rotation periods for Praesepe. Douglas S.T., Agueros M.A., Covey K.R., Kraus A. <Astrophys. J., 842, 83-83 (2017)> =2017ApJ...842...83D (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

We find that half of the rapidly rotating ≳0.3M stars are confirmed or candidate binary systems. The remaining ≳0.3M fast rotators have not been searched for companions, and are therefore not confirmed single stars. We previously found that nearly all rapidly rotating 0.3M stars in the Hyades are binaries, but we require deeper binary searches in Praesepe to confirm whether binaries in these two co-eval clusters have different Prot distributions. We also compare the observed Prot distribution in Praesepe to that predicted by models of angular-momentum evolution. We do not observe the clear bimodal Prot distribution predicted by Brown (2014ApJ...789..101B) for >0.5M stars at the age of Praesepe, but 0.25-0.5M stars do show stronger bimodality. In addition, we find that >60% of early M dwarfs in Praesepe rotate more slowly than predicted at 650Myr by Matt+ (2015ApJ...799L..23M), which suggests an increase in braking efficiency for these stars relative to solar-type stars and fully convective stars. The incompleteness of surveys for binaries in open clusters likely impacts our comparison with these models since the models only attempt to describe the evolution of isolated single stars. Description: We continue to use the Praesepe membership catalog presented in PaperII (Douglas+, 2014, J/ApJ/795/161), which includes 1130 cluster members with membership probabilities Pmem≥50% as calculated by Kraus & Hillenbrand (2007, J/AJ/134/2340) and 39 previously identified members too bright to be included by those authors in their catalog for the cluster. We assign these bright stars Pmem=100%. We also continue to use the photometry and stellar masses presented in Table 5 of Paper II. For most of our analysis, as in that work, we include only the 1099 stars with Pmem≥70%. K2 targeted Praesepe in its Campaign 5. We analyze the resulting long-cadence data for 794 Praesepe members. We present Prot for 677 K2 targets. Of these, 471 are new measurements. File Summary:

Note (1): Quality flag as follows: 0 = visually confirmed detection; 1 = questionable detection; 2 = clearly spurious detection; 3 = no significant periodogram peak. Note (2): Photometric amplitude of variability uses the 10th and 90th percentiles (P10 and P90) of the light curve in counts, and Equation 2: 2.5*(log10(P90)-log10(P10))/2. Note (3): Smoothed amplitude is the percent difference between the maximum and minimum values of the smoothed phase-folded light curve. Note (4): Period selected as the final period to plot. Code as follows: 2 = K2 (Prot2); K = Kovacs et al. (2014, J/MNRAS/442/2081) (ProtK); D = Delorme et al. (2011, J/MNRAS/413/2218) (ProtD); S = Scholz et al. (2007MNRAS.381.1638S,2011MNRAS.413.2595S) (ProtS); P = Agueros et al. (2011ApJ...740..110A) (ProtA).
