Frequency distribution of x-ray flares for low-mass young stellar objects in the Orion nebula

Article

The frequency distribution of x-ray flares is determined for the young, lowest-mass stellar objects in the Orion nebula. The methods used to do this have been developed previously for determining the analogous function for optical flares of flare stars. For this sample it is found that the x-ray flaring frequency distribution can be described by an exponential function.
