J/other/A+ARV/17.251   Stars observed with Doppler imaging   (Strassmeier, 2009)

Starspots. Strassmeier K.G. <Astron. Astrophys. Rev., 17, 251-308 (2009)> =2009A&ARv..17..251S
ADC_Keywords: Stars, fundamental ; Magnetic fields ; Effective temperatures Keywords: starspots - stars: activity - stars: imaging - sunspots - magnetic fields - techniques: polarimetric - stars: rotation - exoplanets Abstract: Starspots are created by local magnetic fields on the surfaces of stars, just as sunspots. Their fields are strong enough to suppress the overturning convective motion and thus block or redirect the flow of energy from the stellar interior outwards to the surface and consequently appear as locally cool and therefore dark regions against an otherwise bright photosphere. This article is an attempt to review our current knowledge of starspots. Description: Table 1 is a list of cool stars that have-so far-been investigated with the Dopplerimaging technique and that have had their spots detected and mapped. File Summary:

Note (1): the stars are classified in the following categories: RS CVn = close binary with evolved component(s); BY Dra = close binary with main-sequence components; W UMa = contact binary; CV = cool secondary in a cataclysmic variable Pre-CV = pre-stage to CV CBPN = central binary of planetary nebula; Alp Per = member of alpha-Per cluster, Pleiad = member of Pleiades cluster, single star; WTTS = weak-lined T Tauri star; CTTS = classical T Tauri star; FK Com = single rapidly-rotating giant; Eff.-s = effectively single star (but component in wide binary); Single = single star, unspecified.
