Detection of differential rotation in ψ Cap with profile analysis.

REINERS A., SCHMITT J.H.M.M. and KUERSTER M.

Abstract (from CDS):

We report detection of differential rotation on the F5 dwarf ψCap using line profile analysis. The Fourier transform of both Feiλ5775 and Siiλ5772 are used to obtain a projected rotational velocity of vsin i=42±1km/s. Modelling of the Fourier transformed profiles shows that the combined effects of equatorial velocity, inclination and differential rotation dominate the line profile while limb darkening and turbulence velocities have only minor effects. Rigid rotation is shown to be inconsistent with the measured profiles. Modelling the line profiles analogous to solar differential rotation we find a differential rotation parameter of α=0.15±0.1 (15±10%) comparable to the solar case. To our knowledge this is the first successful measurement of differential rotation through line profile analysis.
