ABSTRACT
Context. T Tau stars display different X-ray properties depending on whether they are accreting (classical T Tau stars; CTTS) or not (weak-line
T Tau stars; WTTS). X-ray properties may provide insight into the accretion process between disk and stellar surface.
Aims. We use data from the XMM-Newton Extended Survey of the Taurus Molecular Cloud (XEST) to study differences in X-ray properties
between CTTS and WTTS.
Methods. XEST data are used to perform correlation and regression analysis between X-ray parameters and stellar properties.
Results. We confirm the existence of a X-ray luminosity (LX) vs. mass (M) relation, LX M1.69±0.11
