Stellar kinematic groups are kinematical coherent groups of stars that might have a common origin. These groups are dispersed throughout the Galaxy over time by the tidal effects of both Galactic rotation and disc heating, although their chemical content remains unchanged. The aim of chemical tagging is to establish that the abundances of every element in the analysis are homogeneus among the members. We study the case of the Hyades Supercluster to compile a reliable list of members (FGK stars… Expand
Chemical tagging of the Ursa Major moving group: A northern selection of FGK stars
Stellar kinematic groups are kinematical coherent groups of stars which might share a common origin.These groups spread through the Galaxy over time due to tidal effects caused by Galactic rotationExpand

A Gaia study of the Hyades open cluster
We present a study of the membership of the Hyades open cluster, derive kinematically-modelled parallaxes of its members, and study the colour-absolute magnitude diagram of the cluster. We use GaiaExpand
X-shooter spectroscopy of young stellar objects in Lupus: Lithium, iron, and barium elemental abundances
With the purpose of performing a homogeneous determination of elemental abundances for members of the Lupus T association, we analyzed three chemical elements: lithium, iron, and barium. The aimsExpand
Stellar activity as a tracer of moving groups
We present the results of a study of the stellar activity in the solar neighborhood using complete kinematics (galactocentric velocities U, V, W) and the chromospheric activity index logR 0. WeExpand
Consistent metallicity scale for cool dwarfs and giants. A benchmark test using the Hyades
In several instances chemical abundances of dwarf and giant stars are used simultaneously under the assumption that they share the same abundance scale. This assumption might have implications inExpand
