Portuguese Abstract: In the present study we apply a Tsallis maximum entropy distribution law to the study of the stellar residual radial velocity in a sample of 13 stellar open clusters. From a comparison between results obtained from the analysis based on Tsallis law and on the one based on the Maxwellian law we show that the generalized Tsallis distribution fits more closely the observed distribution of the stellar residual radial velocities for these stellar clusters. We have found clear evidences that the q-parameter in the Tsallis generalized distribution depends on stellar cluster ages for clusters older than 10. There is also some indication that q increases with cluster galactocentric distance. The results obtained in this work represent an additional solid constraint in the stellar astrophysics favoring the Tsallis maximum entropy theory
