Detection of young stars in large spectroscopic
dr. Maruša ŽerjalFaculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana
Stellar magnetic activity is a suitable age estimator for young solar-like stars. It manifests itself in a wide range of excess emission intensities in the strongest spectral lines. Today, in the era of large spectroscopic surveys, it is possible to identify a substantial number of young stars in the Solar neighborhood using efficient unsupervised classification algorithms. I will present a very large catalog of young stars in the RAVE survey and discuss the Galah and FunnelWeb surveys that hold a huge potential not only for the reconstruction of a recent nearby star formation events but also for the studies of young exoplanets and their environments around the nearest stars.
