Commission 37: Star Clusters and Associations

1982 Transactions of the International Astronomical Union  
The past triennium has been a very active period in most branches of cluster research. Some controversial subjects, notably globular cluster abundances and ages have received much attention. A good number of photometric papers on clusters as well as associations have been published. Observational effects of mass loss have been discussed by several astronomers.This report has been assembled by the president of the commission although several sections have been contributed by other members. The

These have been assembled by B. Balázs, G. Harris and R. White, respectively. After these tables comes a section by D. Heggie about dynamics of star clusters. A working group under the chairmanship of A. Moffat has made a proposal about the numbering of stars in clusters. The proposal, which is included here will be discussed by our commission at the IAU General Assembly.
