Rotation is one of the key stellar parameters which undergo substantial evolution during the stellar lifetime, in particular during the early stages. Stellar rotational periods can be determined on the basis of the periodic modulation of starlight produced by non-uniformities on the surface of the stars, due to manifestation of stellar activity. We present the results of an extensive search for rotational periods among NGC 2264 cluster members, based on photometric monitoring using the CoRoT…

CSI 2264: Investigating rotation and its connection with disk accretion in the young open cluster NGC 2264
The low spin rates measured for solar-type stars at an age of a few Myr (~10% of the break-up velocity) indicate that some mechanism of angular momentum regulation must be at play in the early
Rotation period distribution of CoRoT and Kepler Sun-like stars
We study the distribution of the photometric rotation period (Prot), which is a direct measurement of the surface rotation at active latitudes, for three subsamples of Sun-like stars: one from CoRoT
CSI 2264: Simultaneous optical and X-ray variability in the pre-main sequence stars of NGC 2264
Context. Pre-main sequence stars are variable sources. In diskless stars this variability is mainly due to the rotational modulation of dark photospheric spots and active regions, as in main sequence

Context. The accretion process has a central role in the formation of stars and planets. Aims. We aim at characterizing the accretion properties of several hundred members of the star-forming

In the last decades, the early pre main sequence stellar rotational evolution picture has been constrained by studies targeting different young regions at a variety of ages. Observational studies
Differential Rotation in Sun-like Stars from Surface Variability and Asteroseismology
Thanks to helioseismology we know the internal rotation of the Sun as a function of radius and latitude. The presence of a shear at the base of the solar convection zone is thought to play a key role
CSI 2264: Accretion process in classical T Tauri stars in the young cluster NGC 2264
Our goal is to relate the photometric and spectroscopic variability of classical T Tauri stars, of the star-forming cluster NGC 2264, to the physical processes acting in the stellar and circumstellar
Catastrophic rotational braking among Sun-like stars. A model of the Sun's rotation evolution
Context. Observations of young open clusters show a bimodal distribution of stellar rotation. In those clusters, Sun-like stars group into two main populations of fast and slow rotators. Beyond an
The Gaia-ESO Survey: Stellar radii in the young open clusters NGC 2264, NGC 2547 and NGC 2516
Rapidly rotating, low-mass members of eclipsing binary systems have measured radii significantly larger than predicted by standard models. It has been proposed that magnetic activity is responsible
The Monitor Project: stellar rotation at 13 Myr - I. A photometric monitoring survey of the young open cluster h Persei
We aim at constraining the angular momentum evolution of low mass stars by measuring their rotation rates when they begin to evolve freely towards the ZAMS, i.e. after the disk accretion phase has


Rotational evolution of low mass stars: The case of NGC 2264 ?
Our study is based on an extensive photometric monitoring program in the young (2-4 Myr) open cluster NGC 2264 by Lamm et al. (2004a). This program resulted in a sample of 405 periodic variables
