The Determination of Absolute Magnitudes from Proper Motions

  • W. J. Luyten (a1)

Abstract

A brief review is given of the several ways in which stellar motions may be used statistically. In the case where the motions of all stars shown on plates of certain regions are measured these are generally used to determine kinematical relations in the Galaxy and only secondarily for the estimation of luminosities; when motions are measured for special groups of stars the solar motion is first determined and then used for the calculation of distances and luminosities.
