Aims. Employing photometric rotation periods for solar-type stars in NGC 1039 [M 34], a young, nearby open cluster, we use its mass-dependent rotation period distribution to derive the cluster’s age in a distance independent way, i.e., the so-called gyrochronology method. Methods. We present an analysis of 55 new rotation periods, using light curves derived from differential photometry, for solar type stars in the open cluster NGC 1039 [M 34]. We also exploit the results of a recently-completed… Expand
A color-period diagram for the open cluster M 48 (NGC 2548), and its rotational age
Rotation periods are increasingly being used to derive ages for cool single field stars. Such ages are based on an empirical understanding of how cool stars spin down, acquired by constructingExpand
Rotation periods for cool stars in the open cluster NGC 3532
Context. A very rich cluster intermediate in age between the Pleiades (150 Myr) and the Hyades (600 Myr) is needed to probe the rotational evolution, especially the transition between fast and slowExpand

A large sample of photometric rotation periods for FGK Pleiades stars
Using data from the Hungarian-made Automated Telescope Network (HATNet) survey for transiting exoplanets, we measure photometric rotation periods for 368 Pleiades stars with 0.4 ≲ M ≲ 1.3 M ⊙ . WeExpand
VARIABLE STARS IN THE REGION OF THE OPEN CLUSTER NGC 1039 (M34)
Through time-series BV CCD photometry of the open cluster NGC 225 region, we have detected 30 variable stars including 22 new ones. They are five δ Scuti-type variable stars, a slowly pulsating BExpand
Evaluating Gyrochronology on the Zero-age-main-sequence: Rotation Periods in the Southern Open Cluster Blanco 1 from the KELT-South Survey
We report periods for 33 members of Blanco 1 as measured from Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope-South light curves, the first reported rotation periods for this benchmark zero-age-main-sequenceExpand
Rotation, differential rotation, and gyrochronology of active Kepler stars
The high-precision photometry from the CoRoT and Kepler satellites has led to measurements of surface rotation periods for tens of thousands of stars. Our main goal is to derive ages of thousands ofExpand
X-ray emission regimes and rotation sequences in M 35 . An updated model of stellar activity evolution on the main sequence
Context. Late-type stars in young open clusters show two kinds of dependence of their X-ray emission on rotation. They also tend to group into two main sub-populations that lie on narrow sequences inExpand

Abstract Our ability to determine stellar ages from measurements of stellar rotation, hinges on how well we can measure the dependence of rotation on age for stars of different masses. RotationExpand
