Fundamental Stellar Parameters

Straizys Empirical Calibrations

Calibration of MK spectral types in absolute magnitude Mv.

I apologize for the use of the Italian notation in the following tables. The commas should always be read as dots.

Calibration of MK spectral types in effective temperatures and bolometric corrections.

Calibration of MK spectral types in bolometric absoloute magnitudes.

Stellar masses as Log (M/Ms) for MK types.

Calibration of MK spectral types in surface gravities.

Stellar radii as Log ( R/Rs) for MK types.
