Catalogue of Apparent Diameters and Absolute Radii of Stars (CADARS) - Third edition - Comments and statistics
The Catalogue, available at the Centre de Données Stellaires deStrasbourg, consists of 13 573 records concerning the results obtainedfrom different methods for 7778 stars, reported in the literature. Thefollowing data are listed for each star: identifications, apparentmagnitude, spectral type, apparent diameter in arcsec, absolute radiusin solar units, method of determination, reference, remarks. Commentsand statistics obtained from CADARS are given. The Catalogue isavailable in electronic form at the CDS via anonymous ftp tocdsarc.u-strasbg.fr ( or viahttp://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/qcar?J/A+A/367/521

Sixth Catalogue of Fundamental Stars (FK6). Part III. Additional fundamental stars with direct solutions
The FK6 is a suitable combination of the results of the HIPPARCOSastrometry satellite with ground-based data, measured over a longinterval of time and summarized mainly in the FK5. Part III of the FK6(abbreviated FK6(III)) contains additional fundamental stars with directsolutions. Such direct solutions are appropriate for single stars or forobjects which can be treated like single stars. Part III of the FK6contains in total 3272 stars. Their ground-based data stem from thebright extension of the FK5 (735 stars), from the catalogue of remainingSup stars (RSup, 732 stars), and from the faint extension of the FK5(1805 stars). From the 3272 stars in Part III, we have selected 1928objects as "astrometrically excellent stars", since their instantaneousproper motions and their mean (time-averaged) ones do not differsignificantly. Hence most of the astrometrically excellent stars arewell-behaving "single-star candidates" with good astrometric data. Thesestars are most suited for high-precision astrometry. On the other hand,354 of the stars in Part III are Δμ binaries in the sense ofWielen et al. (1999). Many of them are newly discovered probablebinaries with no other hitherto known indication of binarity. The FK6gives, besides the classical "single-star mode" solutions (SI mode),other solutions which take into account the fact that hidden astrometricbinaries among "apparently single-stars" introduce sizable "cosmicerrors" into the quasi-instantaneously measured HIPPARCOS proper motionsand positions. The FK6 gives, in addition to the SI mode, the "long-termprediction (LTP) mode" and the "short-term prediction (STP) mode". TheseLTP and STP modes are on average the most precise solutions forapparently single stars, depending on the epoch difference with respectto the HIPPARCOS epoch of about 1991. The typical mean error of anFK6(III) proper motion in the single-star mode is 0.59 mas/year. This isa factor of 1.34 better than the typical HIPPARCOS errors for thesestars of 0.79 mas/year. In the long-term prediction mode, in whichcosmic errors are taken into account, the FK6(III) proper motions have atypical mean error of 0.93 mas/year, which is by a factor of about 2better than the corresponding error for the HIPPARCOS values of 1.83mas/year (cosmic errors included).

On the nature of the H BT I infrared emission lines of tau Scorpii
We present Hα , He i lambda 2.058 mu m and 6 hydrogen Brackett andPfund lines of tau Sco (B0.2V) obtained using the ground-based INT andUKIRT instruments as well as satellite data from ISO. The infrared linesall show core emission. We have investigated the formation of theselines using sophisticated non-LTE models. The observed emission in themost pronounced hydrogen lines, such as Bralpha and Pfalpha , isstronger than predicted by our models. The velocities of peak emissionare blue-shifted by 5-10 km with respect to the stellar velocity. Thistogether with the surprisingly strong width of Bralpha and the peculiarprofile of He i lambda 2.058 suggests that shock-induced turbulentvelocity fields may be present in or somewhat above the stellarphotosphere, as has already been suggested from analysis of optical andultraviolet data. We derive T_eff = 32+/-2 kK from the infrared dataalone, a value consistent with previous optical analysis. The goodagreement indicates that quantitative analysis of infrared lines alone(e.g. for hot stars in regions of high extinction) can be used tocharacterize photospheres accurately. We also investigate the mass lossof tau Sco and find an upper-limit of 6 10(-9) M_{sunyr(-1) }. Aparameter study of the infrared hydrogen and helium lines indicates thatemission may be expected in Bralpha and Pfalpha for stars with T_eff ga16 kK and will dominate the profiles of these lines for T_eff ga 31 and26 kK, respectively. He i lambda 2.058 will be in emission for 20 laT_eff la 33 kK and He ii line profiles will contain emission at T_eff ga33 kK. The effect of surface gravity on these values is small. based ondata obtained with the ESA Infrared Space Observatory (ISO), with the UKinfrared telescope (UKIRT, Hawaii) and with the Isaac Newton Telescope(INT, La Palma)

Vitesses radiales. Catalogue WEB: Wilson Evans Batten. Subtittle: Radial velocities: The Wilson-Evans-Batten catalogue.
We give a common version of the two catalogues of Mean Radial Velocitiesby Wilson (1963) and Evans (1978) to which we have added the catalogueof spectroscopic binary systems (Batten et al. 1989). For each star,when possible, we give: 1) an acronym to enter SIMBAD (Set ofIdentifications Measurements and Bibliography for Astronomical Data) ofthe CDS (Centre de Donnees Astronomiques de Strasbourg). 2) the numberHIC of the HIPPARCOS catalogue (Turon 1992). 3) the CCDM number(Catalogue des Composantes des etoiles Doubles et Multiples) byDommanget & Nys (1994). For the cluster stars, a precise study hasbeen done, on the identificator numbers. Numerous remarks point out theproblems we have had to deal with.

The nature of the F STR λ4077 stars. V. Spectroscopic data
We report first high-resolution spectroscopic observations of 17 starsclassified F str λ4077 by Bidelman. They are compared todifferent types of stars, which have been observed at the same time,including 3 CH subgiants, 3 barium stars, 5 λ Bootis stars, Ap/Amstars, and normal main-sequence stars. The detailed equivalent widthsand abundances are given for all measured spectral lines, as well as themean abundance per species for each object. These data and theirsignificance are described in detail and discussed in an articlepublished in the Main Journal.

The nature of the F STR lambda 4077 stars. 3: Spectroscopy of the barium dwarfs and other CP stars
The abundances of C, O, Al, Ca, iron-peak and s-process elements havebeen derived from high-resolution spectra for a sample of starsclassified as F str lambda 4077 by Bidelman. Among the 20 starsmentioned by Bidelman, we have discovered 8 barium dwarfs (or CHsubgiants, according to Bond's terminology), while a 9th star, HD182274, was already known as a CH subgiant. In addition, we haveanalyzed three barium stars taken from the list of Lu et al. (1983)which are probably dwarfs rather than giants, and three CH subgiants.The other 11 F str lambda 4077 stars resemble either the delta Delphinistars, since their iron abundance is enhanced while Ca is normal, or areprobably spectrum composites. A few Am, Ap, lambda Bootis and normalstars have been analyzed for comparison. In particular, we have includedthree lambda Boo candidates, selected from their photometric properties,and their iron deficiency is confirmed. The spectroscopic, photometricand statistical evidences concerning the Ba dwarfs, support the ideathat these stars may be the main sequence counterparts, and possibly theprogenitors of the Ba giants. The C/O ratio varies in these stars fromnormal values to a maximum of 1.5, but mostly within 0.6 and 1.2. Someof these objects may therefore be considered, in this sense, as carbonstars. On the other hand, the abundances of carbon and s-processelements relative to iron are inversely correlated with metallicity, andmay even exceed significantly those of typical, solar-metallicity carbonstars. Metal-deficient C stars must therefore have (C/Fe) greater thanor approximately equal to 1 and (s/Fe) greater than or approximatelyequal to 1.5 as soon as (Fe/H) less than or approximately equal to -1.The neutron exposure is shown to increase when the metallicitydecreases, which is compatible with the C-13 (alpha, n) O-16 neutronsource, but not with the Ne-22 (alpha, n) Mg-25 one. The evolutionarystate (within the main sequence) of the Ba dwarfs, is rediscussed inrelation with their photometric and spectroscopic surface gravity, butit remains unclear.

Walraven photometry of nearby southern OB associations
Homogeneous Walraven (VBLUW) photometry is presented for 5260 stars inthe regions of five nearby southern OB associations: Scorpio Centaurus(Sco OB2), Orion OB1, Canis Major OB1, Monoceros OB1, and Scutum OB2.Derived V and (B - V) in the Johnson system are included.

A photometric survey of the bright southern Be stars
Repeated UBV photometric measurements were made of the 86 bright Bestars south of declination -20 deg, and a network of comparison starswas set up. From a statistical study of the differential photometry itwas found that short- or intermediate-term variability seems to beoccurring in about half of the Be stars, and to be more evident in thestars of earlier spectral type. It was also possible to identify 11individual short- or intermediate-term variables. Four of these (all ofearly B spectral type) appear to exhibit significant variability on atime-scale of a day or less. More intensive observations of one of thesestars, 28 Omega CMA, indicate short-term variations consistent with thepublished spectroscopic period of 1.37 day.

Lists of photometric AM candidates
The Geneva photometric m parameter (Nicolet and Cramer, 1982) is used inorder to select Am photometric candidates from the Rufener (1981)catalogue. Two lists are given, the first containing field stars and thesecond cluster stars. According to the photometric criteria thediffusion process probably responsible for the Am phenomenon takes placerather quickly as Am candidates are present in young clusters. It isconfirmed that the phenomenon is enhanced by low rotational velocity andhigh metallicity. The age seems to slightly affect the Am phenomenon.

Properties of Am, Delta Del and Delta SCT stars in the VBLUW system
The spread with respect to the main sequence in the two-color diagramsfor 115 Am, Delta Del and Delta Sct, for which VBLUW photometricobservations have been obtained, is primarily attributed to gravityeffects. Exceptions to this rule can be recognized from a comparison oftheir positions in these diagrams and in the reddening-independentdiagram L-U/B-L, where some Delta Sct stars have experienced relativelyhigh reddenings, while others are presumably metal-poor. It is notedthat gravities and temperatures compare satisfactorily with those ofDavis Philip et al. (1976), which were based on uvby-beta photometry.

The Hyades main sequence
Intermediate band, H-beta and RI observations of 72 Hyades cluster starsto V = 11 mag are reported and discussed. A modulus of 3.2 mag isderived on the basis of a comparison with field stars of large parallax.Also presented are observations of 98 main-sequence stars of the Hyadesgroup that were previously found to be group members from kinematicalconsiderations. Parallaxes of the group stars, computed on theassumption that they are members of an extended Hyades cluster, yieldmean values of (U, V, W) = (+40.5, -18.4, -4.9) km/s, with dispersionsof (2.3, 2.3, 6.0) km/s, compared with (+41.7, -18.4, -2.0) and (2.6,1.3, 1.9) km/s for the brightest cluster members. It is noted that allthe stars discussed can be considered as members of a supercluster inwhich only a slight relaxation control of the W velocities is presentfor stars far from the nucleus. Evidence is found, including that of thePraesepe cluster at Z = +80 pc, for some interchange between the U, V,and W velocities in stars farthest from the galactic plane, with thetotal cluster velocity being maintained.

Absolute luminosity calibration of Stroemgren's 'late group'
A statistical parallax method based on the principle of maximumlikelihood is used to calibrate absolute luminosities for samples ofcooler stars constituting the 'late group' defined by Stromgren (1966).The samples examined include 415 stars of all luminosity classes and asubset comprising 86 main-sequence stars. Linear calibration relationsinvolving the Stromgren beta, (b-y), and bracketted c1 indices arederived which yield mean absolute magnitudes with an accuracy of 0.09magnitude for the overall sample and 0.13 magnitude for themain-sequence subsample. Several second-order relations are considered,and the results are compared with Crawford's (1975) calibrations as wellas with mean absolute magnitudes obtained from trigonometric parallaxes.The possible effect of interstellar absorption on the calibrationrelations is also investigated.
