We derive a B-V color-temperature relation for stars in the least model-dependent way employing the best modern data. The fit we obtained with the form Teff = Teff{(B-V)0, [Fe/H], log g} covers stars in the range F0–K5 with metallicity [Fe/H] = -1.5 to +0.3 for both dwarfs and giants. The fit is well constrained, and the residual temperature of the fit is 62 K, which is consistent with what is expected from the quality of the input data. Metallicity and surface gravity effects are well…
