(2002PASJ...54..451T). The results are comprehensively discussed and compared with the parameter values derived by different approaches (e.g., photometric colors, theoretical evolutionary tracks, Hipparcos parallaxes, etc.) as well as with the published values found in various literature. It has been confirmed that our purely spectroscopic approach yields fairly reliable and consistent results. Description: tablee1.dat: Based on the equivalent widths measured on the solar flux spectrum of Kurucz et al. (1984, Solar FLux Atlas from 296 to 1300nm (Sunspot, New Mexico: National Solar Observatory) for the Fe I and Fe II lines in Meylan et al.'s (1993ApJS...85..163M) list (with additional two lines Fe I 5855.091 and 6297.792 included by us), we derived the solar gf values while using Kurucz's (1993, CD-ROM 13) ATLAS9 solar atmospheric model (Teff=5777K, log g=4.437, [X]=0.0) with the assumption of A(Fe)=7.50 and vt=1.0 km/s. Such established solar gf values are presented with corresponding E.W. data. For comparison purposes, the gf values of Kurucz and Bell (1995, CD-ROM 23) and those of Grevesse and Sauval (1999, Cat. J/A+A/347/348) (if available) are also given. If the solar gf value could not be determined because the line EW was not measured, a dummy value of 99.999 is given with EW=0.0. Note that the data in the first five columns (line, code, lambdaK, chi, and loggfTGV) are the data actually used by the TGVIT program in the present calculation. tablee2.dat: tablee2.dat contains the input data of measured equivalent widths and the abundance results of the Fe I and Fe II lines corresponding to the finally converged solutions of the atmospheric parameters. tablee2a.dat contains the header part of tablee2, which includes the information concerning the final parameter solutions derived by the TGVIT program. The Fe abundances are repeatedly listed twice in columns 7 and 8 with different signs for neutral and ionized species, such as [+A(FeI),-A(FeII)] in column 7 and [-A(FeI),+A(FeII)] in column 8, in order for the convenience of plotting the FeI and FeII data with different symbols. tablee3.dat: The convergence performance of the final solutions is represented by dt, dg, and dv, which are the averaged absolute changes of Teff, logg, and vt solutions (mostly oscillatory) over the last 4 iterations. Regarding the final Fe abundances derived from Fe I and Fe II lines (A1 and A2), A1=A2(=A)is practically accomplished in all cases, from which [Fe/H] is derived as [Fe/H]=A-7.50. The statistical errors involved with the finally adopted solutions in Teff, logg, vt, A1, and A2 were estimated by the procedure described in subsection 5.2 and are given here as errt, errg, errv, erra1, and erra2, respectively. Note, however, that this procedure does not necessarily work well in all cases. (Sometimes zero values are yielded, which does not mean that the solution is error-free, of course.) File Summary:
