The Monitor project: rotation of low-mass stars in NGC 2362 - testing the disc regulation paradigm at 5 Myr

Abstract:

We report on the results of a time-series photometric survey of NGC 2362, carried out using the CTIO 4-m Blanco telescope and Mosaic-II detector as part of the Monitor project. Rotation periods were derived for 271 candidate cluster members over the mass range 0.1 ≲ M/M⊙ ≲ 1.2. The rotation period distributions show a clear mass-dependent morphology, qualitatively similar to that in NGC 2264, as would be expected from the age of this cluster. Using models of angular momentum evolution, we sho...
