Contributions to the Nearby Stars (NStars) Project: Spectroscopy of Stars Earlier than M0 within 40 Parsecs: The Northern Sample. I.
We have embarked on a project, under the aegis of the Nearby Stars (NStars)/Space Interferometry Mission Preparatory Science Program, to obtain spectra, spectral types, and, where feasible, basic… Expand
The Distance to SN 1999em from the Expanding Photosphere Method
We present optical and infrared spectroscopy of the first 2 months of evolution of the Type II supernova SN 1999em. We combine these data with high-quality optical/infrared photometry beginning only… Expand
The calibration of MK spectral classes using spectral synthesis. 1: The effective temperature calibration of dwarf stars
Debris disks in main-sequence binary systems.
We observed 69 A3-F8 main-sequence binary star systems using the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. We find emission significantly in excess of predicted… Expand
The MK process at 50 years : a powerful tool for astrophysical insight : a Workshop of the Vatican Observatory, Tucson, Arizona, U.S.A., September 1993
Stellar Spectral Classification
AN EXPERT COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR CLASSIFYING STARS ON THE MK SPECTRAL CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM
This paper describes an expert computer program (MKCLASS) designed to classify stellar spectra on the MK Spectral Classification system in a way similar to humans—by direct comparison with the MK… Expand
The Incidence of λ Boötis Stars via an Extension of the MK Spectral Classification System to Very Young A-Type Stars
In this paper we introduce an extension to the MK system of spectral classification that allows the precise classification of pre–main-sequence (PMS) A-type stars, including most Herbig Ae stars.… Expand
The Maximum Age of Trapezium Systems
We sought to determine the maximum age of Trapezium systems by studying possible trapezium systems that were selected independently of their occurrence in H II regions. We started with the… Expand
Contributions to the Nearby Stars (NStars) Project: Spectroscopy of Stars Earlier than M0 within 40 parsecs: The Southern Sample
We are obtaining spectra, spectral types and basic physical parameters for the nearly 3600 dwarf and giant stars earlier than M0 in the Hipparcos catalog within 40pc of the Sun. Here we report on… Expand
