[69.18] The Origins of High Latitude Runaway B stars

JC Martin (University of Minnesota)

We analyzed a sample of 28 high latitude runaway B stars more than 0.5 kpc from the galactic plane. This sample has several characteristics which distinguish it from disk field star samples including: a low incidence of binaries, lack of slow rotators, and no Be stars. A preponderance of the evidence indicates that our sample is dominated by stars that were ejected from dense star clusters and star forming regions by the Dynamic Ejection Scenario (DES, reference).
