|Issue Date:||2016||Journal:||NEW ASTRONOMY||Number:||42||First Page:||29||Abstract:||Stellar rotation depends on different parameters such as age, mass, initial chemical composition, initial angular momentum, and environment characteristics. The range of values of these parameters causes the dispersion in the rotation period distributions observed in young stellar clusters/associations. We focus our investigation on the effects of different circumstellar environments on stellar rotation. More specifically, we consider the effects of a perturber stellar companion on the accretion-disc lifetime at early evolution stages. <P />We are searching in stellar Associations for visual triple systems where all stellar parameters are similar, with the only exceptions of the unknown initial rotation period, and of the circum-stellar environment, in the sense that one of the two about equal-mass components has a close-by third 'perturber' component. <P />In the present study we analyze the 35-Myr old visual triple system TYC 9300-0891-1AB + TYC 9300-0529-1 in the young Octans stellar association consisting of three equal-mass K0V components. We collected from the literature all information that allowed us to infer that the three components are actually physically bound forming a triple system and are members of the Octans Association. We collected broad-band photometric timeseries in two observation seasons. We discovered that all the components are variable, magnetically active, and from periodogram analysis we found the unresolved components TYC 9300-0891-1AB to have a rotation period P = 1.383 d and TYC9300-0529-1 a rotation period P = 1.634 d. <P />TYC 9300-0891-1A, TYC 9300-0891-1B, and TYC 9300-0529-1 have same masses, ages, and initial chemical compositions. The relatively small 16% rotation period difference measured by us indicates that all components had similar initial rotation periods and disc lifetimes, and the separation of 157 AU between the component A and the 'perturber' component B (or vice-versa) has been sufficiently large to prevent any significant perturbation/shortening of the accretion-disc lifetime. </ce:note></ce:bib-reference><ce:bib-reference||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/24472||URL:||http://arxiv.org/abs/1506.04520v1
