Giants and dwarfs are distinguished by their location in the (B - V)-(V - I) diagram or from published proper motion data, where available. The absolute magnitudes of the dwarfs are determined from the MR-(R - I) relation, The density distribution perpendicular to the galactic plane of the dwarfs is consistent with the distribution for K giants found by Oort (1960).

Generally, there is no evidence for a dominant, young population among these stars. Edith A. ), Highlights of Astronomy, Vol. 4, Part II, 67. All Rights Reserved. Copyright © 1977 by the IA U.
