Translated title of the contribution: Parameters of Oscillation Generation Regions in Open Star Cluster Models

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We determine the masses and radii of central regions of open star cluster (OCL) models with small or zero entropy production and estimate the masses of oscillation generation regions in cluster models based on the data of the phase-space coordinates of stars. The radii of such regions are close to the core radii of the OCL models. We develop a new method for estimating the total OCL masses based on the cluster core mass, the cluster and cluster core radii, and radial distribution of stars. This method yields estimates of dynamical masses of Pleiades, Praesepe, and M67, which agree well with the estimates of the total masses of the corresponding clusters based on proper motions and spectroscopic data for cluster stars. We construct the spectra and dispersion curves of the oscillations of the field of azimuthal velocities vφ in OCL models. Weak, low-amplitude unstable oscillations of vφ develop in cluster models near the cluster core boundary, and weak damped oscillations of vφ often develop at frequencies close to the frequencies of more powerful oscillations, which may reduce the non-stationarity degree in OCL models. We determine the number and parameters of such oscillations near the cores boundaries of cluster models. Such oscillations points to the possible role that gradient instability near the core of cluster models plays in the decrease of the mass of the oscillation generation regions and production of entropy in the cores of OCL models with massive extended cores.
