The Rotation and Variability of T Tauri Stars: Results of Two Decades of Monitoring at Van Vleck Observatory

  • W. Herbst (a1)

Abstract

A brief history of photometric monitoring of T Tauri stars with a 0.6 m telescope at Wesleyan University is given. This is followed by discussion of three recent results: 1) the mass dependence of stellar rotation rates in the Orion Nebula Cluster, 2) a check on stellar radii estimates of pre-main sequence stars, and 3) the nature of a very peculiar object in NGC 2264.
