    Abstract: This work presents a mathematical model of dynamic of open clusters (OC) from which their time scales are deduced as well as the number of blue stragglers (BS) present in the cluster. The model is based on the expansion of mass through a sphere defined by a radius, and at a time; this variation of mass is translated into a differential equation tha... Show More
