Rotation in the Pleiades With K2: III. Speculations on origins and evolution

Abstract:

We use high-quality K2 light curves for hundreds of stars in the Pleiades to better understand the angular momentum evolution and magnetic dynamos of young low-mass stars. The K2 light curves provide not only rotational periods but also detailed information from the shape of the phased light curve that was not available in previous studies. A slowly rotating sequence begins at ∼ 1.1 (spectral type F5) and ends at ∼ 3.7 (spectral type K8), with periods rising from ∼2 to ∼11 days in that interv...
