J/AN/331/349  O, B-type & red supergiant masses and luminosities  (Hohle+, 2010)

Masses and luminosities of O- and B-type stars and red supergiants. Hohle M.M., Neuhauser R., Schutz B.F. <Astron. Nachrichten, 331, 349-360 (2010)> =2010AN....331..349H

Recent population synthesis models can predict neutron star and gravitational wave observations but deal with a fixed supernova rate or an assumed initial mass function for the population of massive stars. Here we investigate those massive stars, which are supernova progenitors, i.e. with O- and early B-type stars, and also all supergiants within 3kpc. We restrict our sample to those massive stars detected both in 2MASS and observed by Hipparcos, i.e. only those stars with parallax and precise photometry. To determine the luminosities we calculated the extinctions from published multi-colour photometry, spectral types, luminosity class, all corrected for multiplicity and recently revised Hipparcos distances. We use luminosities and temperatures to estimate the masses and ages of these stars using different models from different authors. File Summary:

Note (2): We derived the luminosities from the corrected (Smith & Eichhorn, 1996MNRAS.281..211S) parallaxes. Bertelli et al., 1994, Cat. J/A+AS/106/275 Claret, 2004, Cat. J/A+A/424/919 Schaller et al., 1992, Cat. J/A+AS/96/269 Note (1): From luminosities and effective temperatures we calculated the masses (using the models below and taking the errors of the luminosities into account) with medians and standard deviation.
