1306.6845 (K. Vida et al.)

A quest for activity cycles in low mass stars    [PDF]

K. Vida, L. Kriskovics, K. Oláh
Long-term photometric measurements in a sample of ultrashort-period (P~0.5 days or less) single and binary stars of different interior structures are analysed. A loose correlation exists between the rotational rate and cycle lengths of active stars, regardless of their evolutionary state and the corresponding physical parameters. The shortest cycles are expected on the fastest rotators in the order of 1-2 years, which is reported in this paper.
