CORRELATION BETWEEN BOLOMETRIC AND X-RAY LUMINOSITIES IN RS CVN-TYPE BINARIES

DEMIRCAN, O
Re-analysis of the X-ray emission from RS CVn-type binaries has revealed that-contrary to the claims by many authors-their coronal activity is not independent of bolometric luminosity (and thus mass). It becomes clear that activity in late-type stars is also powered-just as in the case of early-type stars-mostly by photospheric radiation.
