Tuesday 25 Aug 2020[Journal Club] Title: Recovering Praesepe's Spin distribution at Birth

Tobias Slade-Harajda - university of Exeter

Zoom 11:00-11:30

A star's rotational rate evolves through its lifetime, using current rotational models looking at stellar wind and structural changes, we aim to model the spin evolution of clusters NGC2264, NGC2362, h-Persei and UpperSco, comparing the results to the 665Myr old Praesepe cluster. With some tweaking of initial parameters, we will see which configuration best represents the Praesepe cluster when it was much younger.
