Discovery of new stellar groups in the Orion complex

  journal={arXiv: Astrophysics of Galaxies},
We test the ability of two unsupervised machine learning algorithms, \textit{EnLink} and Shared Nearest Neighbour (SNN), to identify stellar groupings in the Orion star-forming complex as an application to the 5-dimensional astrometric data from \textit{Gaia} DR2. The algorithms represent two distinct approaches to limiting user bias when selecting parameter values and evaluating the relative weights among astrometric parameters. \textit{EnLink} adopts a locally adaptive distance metric and…

Untangling the Galaxy. I. Local Structure and Star Formation History of the Milky Way
Gaia DR2 provides unprecedented precision in measurements of the distance and kinematics of stars in the solar neighborhood. Through applying unsupervised machine learning on DR2's 5-dimensional
Fundamental parameters for 45 open clusters with Gaia DR2, an improved extinction correction and a metallicity gradient prior
Reliable fundamental parameters of open clusters such as distance, age and extinction are key to our understanding of Galactic structure and stellar evolution. In this work we use {\it Gaia} DR2 to
Corona-Australis DANCe
Context. Corona-Australis is one of the nearest regions to the Sun with recent and ongoing star formation, but the current picture of its stellar (and substellar) content is not complete yet. Aims.
Monoceros OB4: a new association in Gaia DR2
We use Gaia DR2 data to survey the classic Monoceros OB1 region and look for the existence of a dispersed young population, co-moving with the cloud complex. An analysis of the distribution of proper
Low Mass Stars as Tracers of Star and Cluster Formation
We review the use of young low mass stars and protostars, or young stellar objects (YSOs), as tracers of star formation. Observations of molecular clouds at visible, infrared, radio and X-ray
3D dynamics of the Orion cloud complex
We present the first study of the 3D dynamics of the gas in the entire Southern Orion cloud complex. We used the YSO's proper motions from Gaia as a proxy for the gas proper motion, together with gas
Evidence for Radial Expansion at the Core of the Orion Complex with Gaia EDR3
We present a phase-space study of two stellar groups located at the core of the Orion Complex: Briceño-1 and Orion Belt Population-near (OBP-near). We identify the groups with the unsupervised
The GALAH survey: Chemical homogeneity of the Orion complex
Due to its proximity, the Orion star forming region is often used as a proxy to study processes related to star formation and to observe young stars in the environment they were born in. With the
The ρ Ophiuchi region revisited with Gaia EDR3
Context. Young and embedded stellar populations are important probes of the star formation process. Paradoxically, we have a better census of nearby embedded young populations than the slightly more
Discovery of a Young Stellar Snake with Two Dissolving Cores in the Solar Neighborhood
We report the discovery of a young (only 30-40\,Myr) snake-like structure (dubbed a stellar "snake") in the solar neighborhood from {\it Gaia} DR2. The average distance of this structure is about


Mapping young stellar populations towards Orion with Gaia DR1
We use the first data release of the Gaia mission to explore the three dimensional arrangement and the age ordering of the many stellar groups towards the Orion OB association, aiming at a new
The APOGEE-2 Survey of the Orion Star-forming Complex. II. Six-dimensional Structure
We present an analysis of spectrosopic and astrometric data from APOGEE-2 and Gaia DR2 to identify structures towards the Orion Complex. By applying a hierarchical clustering algorithm to the
Structure, kinematics, and ages of the young stellar populations in the Orion region
We present a study of the three dimensional structure, kinematics, and age distribution of the Orion OB association, based on the second data release of the Gaia satellite (Gaia DR2). Our goal is to
When the tale comes true: multiple populations and wide binaries in the Orion Nebula Cluster
Context. Recently published high-quality OmegaCAM photometry of the 3 × 3 deg around the Orion Nebula Cluster (ONC) in r, and i filters revealed three well-separated pre-main sequences in the
Global survey of star clusters in the Milky Way II. The catalogue of basic parameters
Context. Although they are the main constituents of the Galactic disk population, for half of the open clusters in the Milky Way reported in the literature nothing is known except the raw position
The GALAH survey: chemical tagging of star clusters and new members in the Pleiades
The technique of chemical tagging uses the elemental abundances of stellar atmospheres to 'reconstruct' chemically homogeneous star clusters that have long since dispersed. The GALAH spectroscopic
A Tale of Three Cities: OmegaCAM discovers multiple sequences in the color-magnitude diagram of the Orion Nebula Cluster
As part of the Accretion Discs in H$\alpha$ with OmegaCAM (ADHOC) survey, we imaged in r, i and H-alpha a region of 12x8 square degrees around the Orion Nebula Cluster. Thanks to the high-quality

A comprehensive census of the stellar content of the OB associations within 1 kpc from the Sun is presented, based on Hipparcos positions, proper motions, and parallaxes. It is a key part of a
VISION – Vienna survey in Orion
We have extended and refined the existing young stellar object (YSO) catalogs for the Orion A molecular cloud, the closest massive star-forming region to Earth. This updated catalog is driven by the
Binary Companions of Evolved Stars in APOGEE DR14: Search Method and Catalog of ∼5000 Companions
Multi-epoch radial velocity measurements of stars can be used to identify stellar, sub-stellar, and planetary-mass companions. Even a small number of observation epochs can be informative about
