|New periodic variables from the Hipparcos epoch photometry|
Two selection statistics are used to extract new candidate periodicvariables from the epoch photometry of the Hipparcos catalogue. Theprimary selection criterion is a signal-to-noise ratio. The dependenceof this statistic on the number of observations is calibrated usingabout 30000 randomly permuted Hipparcos data sets. A significance levelof 0.1 per cent is used to extract a first batch of candidate variables.The second criterion requires that the optimal frequency be unaffectedif the data are de-trended by low-order polynomials. We find 2675 newcandidate periodic variables, of which the majority (2082) are from theHipparcos`unsolved' variables. Potential problems with theinterpretation of the data (e.g. aliasing) are discussed.
|Observations of active-chromosphere stars - IV. Photometry and spectroscopy of CF Octantis (HD 196818)|
We present photometry and spectroscopy of the single, K-type,active-chromosphere star CF Octantis (=HD 196818), from 1982 to 1986.The photometric data show the 20-d rotation period seen previously, andalso demonstrate that the light curve is variable on time-scales of afew months, which we ascribe to variations in the properties ofstarspots. We postulate that a temporary dimming of minimum light seenin mid-1983 was a result of the appearance and later disappearance of arelatively small spot or spot group, which had a lifetime between 10 and24 months. The main spot appeared relatively stable during the intervalof our observations, with a lifetime of at least 3 years. Our radialvelocity data are consistent with the results of other work in that novariations above observational scatter are seen. Both the Ca K andHα emission are variable, with tentative evidence for the latterthat a lower emission level occurred near the phase of photometricmaximum, although the spectroscopic and photometric data were notcontemporaneous. The lithium abundance is found to be logN(Li)=0.45+/-0.15. The star may have evolved from a rapidly rotating A-Fmain-sequence star.
|Classification and Identification of IRAS Sources with Low-Resolution Spectra|
IRAS low-resolution spectra were extracted for 11,224 IRAS sources.These spectra were classified into astrophysical classes, based on thepresence of emission and absorption features and on the shape of thecontinuum. Counterparts of these IRAS sources in existing optical andinfrared catalogs are identified, and their optical spectral types arelisted if they are known. The correlations between thephotospheric/optical and circumstellar/infrared classification arediscussed.
|IRAS catalogues and atlases - Atlas of low-resolution spectra|
Plots of all 5425 spectra in the IRAS catalogue of low-resolutionspectra are presented. The catalogue contains the average spectra ofmost IRAS poiont sources with 12 micron flux densities above 10 Jy.
