Kepler data from G-, K-, and M-type stars are used to study conditions that lead to superflares with energies above 1034 erg. From the 117,661 stars included, 380 show superflares with a total of 1690 such events. We study whether parameters, like effective temperature or rotation rate, have any effect on the superflare occurrence rate or energy. With increasing effective temperature we observe a decrease in the superflare rate, which is analogous to the previous findings of a decrease in…

Abstract Recent high-precision photometry from space (e.g., Kepler) enables us to investigate the nature of “superflares” on solar-type stars. The bolometric energy of superflares detected by Kepler
Title Statistical properties of superflares on solar-type stars based on 1min cadence data
We searched for superflares on solar-type stars using Kepler data with 1-min sampling in order to detect superflares with a short duration. We found 187 superflares on 23 solar-type stars whose

We searched for superflares on solar-type stars using Kepler data with 1-min sampling in order to detect superflares with a short duration. We found 187 superflares on 23 solar-type stars whose
Statistical Properties of Superflares on Solar-type Stars: Results Using All of the Kepler Primary Mission Data
We report the latest statistical analyses of superflares on solar-type (G-type main-sequence; effective temperature is 5100–6000 K) stars using all of the Kepler primary mission data and Gaia Data
Observational evidence for enhanced magnetic activity of superflare stars
TLDR
Observations made with the LAMOST telescope show that superflare stars are generally characterized by larger chromospheric emissions than other stars, including the Sun, suggesting that solar flares and superflares most likely share the same origin.
{High dispersion spectroscopy of solar-type superflare stars with Subaru/HDS†
Abstract We carried out spectroscopic observations with Subaru/HDS of 50 solar-type superflare stars found from Kepler data. More than half (34 stars) of the target stars show no evidence of the
Enhanced stellar activity for slow antisolar differential rotation
High-precision photometry of solar-like members of the open cluster M67 with Kepler/K2 data has recently revealed enhanced activity for stars with a large Rossby number, which is the ratio of
High dispersion spectroscopy of solar-type superflare stars. I. Temperature, surface gravity, metallicity, and vsin i
We conducted high dispersion spectroscopic observations of 50 superflare stars with Subaru/HDS, and measured the stellar parameters of them. These 50 targets were selected from the solar-type (G-type
Can Superflares Occur on the Sun? A View from Dynamo Theory
Recent data from the Kepler mission has revealed the occurrence of superflares in Sun-like stars which exceed by far any observed solar flares in released energy. Radionuclide data do not provide
Stellar flares observed in long cadence data from the Kepler mission
We aim to perform a statistical study of stellar flares observed by Kepler. We want to study the flare amplitude, duration, energy, and occurrence rates, and how they are related to the spectral type

SUPERFLARES ON SOLAR-TYPE STARS OBSERVED WITH KEPLER. I. STATISTICAL PROPERTIES OF SUPERFLARES
By extending our previous study by Maehara et al., we searched for superflares on G-type dwarfs (solar-type stars) using Kepler data for a longer period (500 days) than that (120 days) in our
Two sun-like superflare stars rotating as slow as the Sun
We report on the results of high dispersion spectroscopy of two `superflare stars', KIC 9766237, and KIC 9944137 with Subaru/HDS. Superflare stars are G-type main sequence stars, but show gigantic
Superflares on solar-type stars
TLDR
Quasi-periodic brightness modulations observed in the solar-type stars suggest that they have much larger starspots than does the Sun, and the data suggest that superflares occur more frequently on rapidly rotating stars.
Rotation, convection, and magnetic activity in lower main-sequence stars
Rotation periods are reported for 14 main-sequence stars, bringing the total number of such stars with well-determined rotation periods to 41. It is found that the mean level of their Ca n H and K
A dynamo model of magnetic activity in solar-like stars with different rotational velocities
We attempt to provide a quantitative theoretical explanation for the observations that Ca ii H/K emission and X-ray emission from solar-like stars increase with decreasing Rossby number (i.e., with
The dependence of differential rotation on temperature and rotation
We use Doppler imaging techniques to determine the dependence of starspot rotation rates on latitude in an homogeneous sample of young, rapidly-rotating solar analogues. A solar-like differential
THE STELLAR ACTIVITY-ROTATION RELATIONSHIP AND THE EVOLUTION OF STELLAR DYNAMOS
We present a sample of 824 solar and late-type stars with X-ray luminosities and rotation periods. This is used to study the relationship between rotation and stellar activity and derive a new
Can Superflares Occur on Our Sun
Recent observations of solar type stars with the Kepler satellite by Maehara et al. have revealed the existence of superflares (with energy of 10^33 - 10^35 erg) on Sun-like stars, which are similar
Superflares on Ordinary Solar-Type Stars
Short-duration flares are well known to occur on cool main-sequence stars as well as on many types of "exotic" stars. Ordinary main-sequence stars are usually pictured as being static on timescales

While it has previously been claimed that X-ray luminosity, or surface flux, varies as a power of the rotational velocity in G dwarfs, it is demonstrated that a single power law does not provide an
