Overview

Context of Coronal genealogy- the evolution of high-energy emission from low-mass stars project at University of Dundee  

Newborn stars are violent high-energy emitters - up to ten-thousand times more luminous in X-rays than the present-day Sun. Many are still surrounded by substantial disks of gas and dust, the eventual birthplace of planets. How their X-ray emission evolves over time and how it is linked to the stellar magnetic field topology derived from observations are open questions. High-energy emission may influence the disk chemistry and structure, and therefore the formation of planets.

Programme Structure

  • Using the latest observational data as a basis, the student will model the star-disk interaction and coronal magnetic evolution as a function of magnetic field topology, as stars evolve across the pre-main sequence. For more mature pre-main sequence stars, where the disk has dispersed but the star is still contracting under gravity, it has been observed that the scatter in X-ray luminosities decreases. However, stars in young clusters do not yet follow the well known rotation-activity relation 
  • You will create a series of simulated stellar clusters, evolved from observational data of pre-main sequence regions, to model the emergence of the rotation-activity relation.
