This tutorial is devoted to extending an existing catalogue with data taken elsewhere, either from CDS Vizier or Simbad database. As an example, we used the so-called 'Spectroscopic Survey of Stars in the Solar Neighborhood' (aka. S4N, Allende Prieto et al. 2004) in order to retrieve all objects with available data for the set of fundamental stellar parameters effective temperature, surface gravity and metallicity. Then for each object in this dataset we query Simbad database to retrieve the…

A new method for the inversion of atmospheric parameters of A/Am stars

We present an automated procedure that derives simultaneously the effective temperature $T_{eff}$, the surface gravity logg, the metallicity [Fe/H], and the equatorial projected rotational velocity

Inversion of stellar fundamental parameters from ESPaDOnS and Narval high-resolution spectra

The general context of this study is the inversion of stellar fundamental parameters from high-resolution Echelle spectra. We aim at developing a fast and reliable tool for the post-processing of

Deep learning applications for stellar parameter determination: II-application to the observed spectra of AFGK stars

Abstract In this follow-up article, we investigate the use of convolutional neural network for deriving stellar parameters from observed spectra. Using hyperparameters determined previously, we have

ROTATION–ACTIVITY CORRELATIONS IN K AND M DWARFS. I. STELLAR PARAMETERS AND COMPILATIONS OF v sin i AND P/sin i FOR A LARGE SAMPLE OF LATE-K AND M DWARFS

The reliable determination of rotation–activity correlations (RACs) depends on precise measurements of the following stellar parameters: Teff, parallax, radius, metallicity, and rotational speed v

The Mass–Activity Relationships in M and K Dwarfs. I. Stellar Parameters of Our Sample of M and K Dwarfs

Empirical correlations between stellar parameters such as rotation or radius and magnetic activity diagnostics require estimates of the effective temperatures and the stellar radii. The aim of this

Principal component analysis-based inversion of effective temperatures for late-type stars

We show how the range of application of the principal component analysis-based inversion method of Paletou et al. (2015) can be extended to late-type stars data. Besides being an extension of its

The GSO Data Centre

Hereafter we describe the activities of the $Grand \, Sud-Ouest$ Data Centre operated for INSU/CNRS by the OMP-IRAP and the Universit\'e Paul Sabatier (Toulouse), in a collaboration with the OASU-LAB

The Rotation–activity Correlations in K and M Dwarfs. II. New Constraints on the Dynamo Mechanisms in Late-K and M Dwarfs before and at the Transition to Complete Convection

We study the rotation–activity correlations (RACs) in a sample of stars from spectral type dK4 to dM4. We study RACs using chromospheric data and coronal data. We study the Ca ii line surface fluxes-
