We present improved visual and near-infrared empirical mass-luminosity relations for very low mass stars (M$<$0.6~\Msol). These relations make use of all stellar masses in this range known with better than 10% accuracy, most of which are new determinations with 0.2 to 5% accuracy from our own programme, presented in a companion paper. As predicted by stellar structure models, the metallicity dispersion of the field populations induces a large scatter around the mean V band relation, while the… Expand
