The 3'' pair of B9 stars HD 28867 is one of the brightest X-ray sources in the Taurus-Auriga star-forming region. In this multiwavelength study, we attempt to deduce the source of the X-ray emission. We show that the east component is the X-ray source. The east component has a near-IR excess and displays narrow absorption lines in the optical, both of which are consistent with a cool stellar companion. This companion is one of the brightest low-mass pre?main-sequence stars in Tau-Aur; at 2 ?m…

The Disk Population of the Taurus Star-Forming Region
We have analyzed nearly all images of the Taurus star-forming region at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0, and 24??m that were obtained during the cryogenic mission of the Spitzer Space Telescope (46 deg2) and have

(abridged:) The XMM-Newton Extended Survey of the Taurus Molecular Cloud (XEST) surveys the most populated ~5 square degrees of the Taurus star formation region, using the XMM-Newton X-ray
An Infrared/X-ray Survey for New Members of the Taurus Star-Forming Region
We present the results of a search for new members of the Taurus star-forming region using data from the Spitzer Space Telescope and the XMM-Newton Observatory. We have obtained optical and
We describe the results of a search for early-type stars associated with the Taurus-Auriga molecular cloud complex, a diffuse nearby star-forming region noted as lacking young stars of intermediate
Mass Determination and Detection of the Onset of Chromospheric Activity for the Substellar Object in EF Eridani
EF Eri is a magnetic cataclysmic variable that has been in a low accretion state for the past 9 yr. Low-state optical spectra reveal the underlying Zeeman-split white dwarf absorption lines. These
Resolved Young Binary Systems and Their Disks
We have conducted a survey of young single and multiple systems in the Taurus-Auriga star-forming region with the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), substantially improving both the spatial
A Survey for New Members of the Taurus Star-Forming Region with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Previous studies have found that ~1 deg2 fields surrounding the stellar aggregates in the Taurus star-forming region exhibit a surplus of solar-mass stars relative to denser clusters like IC~348 and
Gaia EDR3 Reveals the Substructure and Complicated Star Formation History of the Greater Taurus-Auriga Star-forming Complex
The Taurus-Auriga complex is the prototypical low-mass star-forming region, and provides a unique testbed of the star formation process, which left observable imprints on the spatial, kinematic, and
Young Stellar Groups and Their Most Massive Stars
We analyze the masses and spatial distributions of fourteen young stellar groups in Taurus, Lupus3, ChaI, and IC348. These nearby groups, which typically contain 20 to 40 members, have membership
