Distance determination for RAVE stars using stellar models: III. the nature of the RAVE survey and Milky Way chemistry

Burnett, B. C. M.; Binney, J; Sharma, S; Williams, Mary; Zwitter, T; Bienayme, O; Bland-Hawthorn, Joss; Freeman, Kenneth; Fulbright, J.P.; Gibson, Bradley K; Gilmore, Gerard; Grebel, E.; Munari, U; Steinmetz, Matthias


We apply the method of Burnett & Binney (2010, MNRAS, 407, 339) for the determination of stellar distances and parameters to the internal catalogue of the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE; Steinmetz et al. 2006, AJ, 132, 1645). Subsamples of stars that either have Hipparcos parallaxes or belong to well-studied clusters inspire confidence in the formal errors. Distances to dwarfs cooler than ∼6000 K appear to be unbiased, but those to hotter dwarfs tend to be too small by ∼10% of the formal...[Show more]
