Stellar multiplicity of the open cluster ASCC 113.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present a high angular resolution survey for binary and multiple stars in the Galactic open cluster ASCC 113. Our observations were conducted on the 2.1 m telescope of the Observatorio Astronómico Nacional, Sierra San Pedro Mártir, México. Combining our results with data taken from the literature, we found a ratio of the number of single to binary stars to be 27:7 for the most probable members, so the multiplicity fraction for this cluster is 20.6%±3%. We also observed field stars in the vicinity of the cluster and estimated a ratio of multiplicities to be 125:27:4:1:0:0:0:1 (between one and eight companions), equivalent to a multiplicity fraction of 20.9%±1%. We estimated the number of undetected companions in our sample to be very small. Comparing the multiplicity frequency of the cluster with the frequency of the field, we concluded that they are statistically indistinguishable from each other. We provide a brief review on the topic of stellar multiplicity in open clusters.
