Using Python to Study Rotational Velocity Distributions of Hot Stars


Stars are fundamental pieces that compose our Universe. By studying them we can better comprehend the environment in which we live. In this work, we have studied a sample of 350 nearby O and B stars and have characterized them in aspects of their multiplicity, temperature, spectral classifications, and projected rotational velocity.

Python is a robust language with a steep learning curve, i.e. one can make rapid progress with it. In this proceeding, we will present how we used Python in our research.
