Non-Commutative Worlds -- A Summary
Such stars can have magnetic activity if they rotate and if they have significant convective envelopes (Hartmann & Noyes 1987).
Possible Magnetic Activity in the Low Mass X-ray Binary EXO 0748-676
This was done according to the procedure by Noyes (1983) and Noyes et al. (1984).
Solar-type Variables
Noyes et al. (1997) used the code for optimisation of the derived orbital parameters in their work on a possible planet orbiting ρ CrB.

Networks, An Introduction . Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010. Noy, Natalya F, and Deborah L McGuinness.
Multi-Connected Ontologies
The level of coronal activity for stars with outer convective zones strongly depends on the stellar rotation rate (see Noyes et al. 1984).
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
The low chromospheric HK value suggests a rotation period of at least 17 days (Noyes et al., 1984).
Detection of a spectroscopic transit by the planet orbiting the star HD209458
Wright et al. (2004), following Noyes et al. (1984), transformed S to R′ HK which represents the fraction of a star’s total luminosity emitted by the chromosphere in the Ca II H and K lines.

Astrobiologically Interesting Stars within 10 parsecs of the Sun
This is illustrated by the situation for planar graphs: the asymptotic number of labeled planar graphs was recently determined by Gim´enez and Noy , based on singularity analysis, whereas the enumeration of unlabeled planar graphs is a research problem left open for several decades .
Enumeration of Unlabeled Outerplanar Graphs
Bender, Gao, and Wormald used this property to count labeled two-connected planar graphs , and Gim´enez and Noy recently extended this work to the enumeration of labeled planar graphs .
Enumeration of Unlabeled Outerplanar Graphs

In 2001, Sergi Elizalde and Marc Noy considered similar problems using another definition of pattern containment.

An intriguing conjecture of Elizalde and Noy is the following.

In fact, in , Elizalde and Noy showed that there are exactly seven distinct sequences of this kind.
