By Arne Slettebak (auth.), Arne Slettebak (eds.)

The overseas Astronomical Union Colloquium on Stellar Rotation used to be held on the Ohio country collage in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. from September eighth via eleven th, 1969. Forty-four scientists from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, East and West Germany, Italy, Israel, Japan, The Netherlands, and the us attended and took part within the Colloquium. the current quantity, which parallels the particular application heavily, comprises the papers offered on the Colloquium plus many of the dialogue following these papers. The Colloquium was once backed by means of the foreign Astronomical Union, the Ohio country collage, and the nationwide technological know-how origin. it's a excitement to list my because of those corporations and particularly to Dr. Geoffrey Keller, Dean of the varsity of arithmetic and actual Sciences of the Ohio kingdom collage, and to Prof. C. de Jager, Assistant common Secretary of the overseas Astronomical Un­ ion, for his or her type cooperation. i'm additionally thankful to H. A. Abt, J. Hardorp, R. P. Kraft, Mrs. A. Massevitch, M. Plavec, 1. W. Roxburgh, and E. Schatzman of the Organizing Committee, in addition to A. J. Deutsch and G. W. Collins, II, for his or her assist in making plans the Colloquium­ them all provided priceless feedback towards organizing the program.

The magnitude expected from the parallax listed in the Catalog of Bright Stars if available. A very strong correlation was found, which had a slope near unity. Secondly, histograms of the velocities in all six groups were compared. If the mechanism of Kraft and Wrubel were operative, we would expect no stars with v sini greater than 150 km/sec in group A and none with v sin i over 100 km/sec in group D. We would also expect relatively larger numbers of fast rotators in groups B, C, E, and F. Neither effect is observed.

For comparison, results for a nonrotating star of 10 M0 (line 2), a star rigidly rotating with the same angular velocity as the primary of the binary system (line 3), and a star rigidly rotating with the maximum angular velocity possible (line 4) are given.
