The long-term evolution of stellar activity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

I review the evolution of low-mass stars with outer convective zones over timescales of millions-to-billions of years, from the pre-main sequence to solar-age, ~4.6 Gyr (Bahcall et al. 1995; Amelin et al. 2010), and beyond. I discuss the evolution of high-energy coronal and chromospheric emission, the links with stellar rotation and magnetism, and the emergence of the rotation-activity relation for stars within young clusters.
