A Continuum of Accretion Burst Behavior in Young Stars Observed by K2

Abstract

We present 29 likely members of the young ρ Oph or Upper Sco regions of recent star formation that exhibit “accretion burst” type light curves in K2 time series photometry. The bursters were identified by visual examination of their ∼80-day light curves, though all satisfy the < M 0.25 flux asymmetry criterion for burst behavior defined by Cody et al. The… (More)
