FK Comae--The Kinematical Determination of its Age and Evolutionary Status.

The variable star FK Com is a rapidly rotating G giant (P rot = 2.40 days) with strong Hα and Cα II H + K line emissions. The large angular momentum of FK Com cannot be explained through the evolution of a single star, but high-precision radial-velocity studies so far have failed to show it to be a...
