Young stellar groups and their most massive stars.


Abstract (from CDS):

We analyze the masses and spatial distributions of 14 young stellar groups in Taurus, Lupus3, ChaI, and IC348. These nearby groups, which typically contain 20-40 members, have membership catalogs complete to ∼0.02 M, and are sufficiently young that their locations should be similar to where they formed. These groups show five properties seen in clusters having many more stars and much greater surface density of stars: (1) a broad range of masses, (2) a concentration of the most massive star toward the center of the group, (3) an association of the most massive star with a high surface density of lower mass stars, (4) a correlation of the mass of the most massive star with the total mass of the group, and (5) the distribution of a large fraction of the mass in a small fraction of the stars.
