III/226              Rotational Velocities of Stars     (Glebocki+ 2000)

The Catalogue of Stellar Projected Rotational Velocities Glebocki R., Gnacinski P., Stawikowski A. <Acta Astron., 50, 509 (2000)> =2000AcA....50..509G
ADC_Keywords: Rotational velocities Keywords: stars: rotation Description: The catalog is an up-to-date compilation of the observed projected rotational velocities, Vrot*sin(i), for about 12000 stars of all spectral types and luminosity classes; the bibliographical survey is complete up to November 2000. The catalog.dat file contains 17490 individual Vrot*sin(i) data, together with the errors and the methods of determinations. For users convenience Uesugi and Fukuda (CDS Cat/III/63) data are included in the main catalogue. Detailed description of error evaluation and categorisation of method of determination of Vrot*sin(i) values are given in Glebocki and Stawikowski (2000AcA....50..509G). The bibliographical references are provided in refs.dat file. File Summary:

Note (1): A=prim., B=sec., T=tertiary, C=cold, H=hot. For other designations see the referenced paper. Note (2): If V magnitude was not given in the Simbad Database, then the B filter magnitude was used. Note (3): The symbols <,≤,>,≥ denote that vsini is an upper or lower limit. Colon (:) indicates an uncertain value, double-colon (::) indicates very uncertain value. The apostrophe (') is used for estimation of error given for the whole analysed sample. Note (4): The symbols have the following meaning: FTLP = Fourier Transform of Line Profile, C-C = Cross-correlation technique, FWHM = Calibrated line width at half maximum, Conv = Convolution with calculated rotational broadening, LW = Comparison (eye) with standards, Ref = Special procedure: see the referenced paper.
