Context. The Taurus-Auriga star-forming complex hosts the only popu lation of T Tauri stars in which an anticorrelation of X-ray activity and rotation period has been observed. Aims. We aim to explain the origin of the X-ray activity–rotation r elation in Taurus-Auriga. We also aim to put the X-ray activi ty of these stars into the context of the activity of late-type mai n-sequence stars and T Tauri stars in the Orion Nebula Cluste r. Methods. We have usedXMM-Newton’s European Photon Imaging… CONTINUE READING
