Nominal values for selected solar and planetary quantities: IAU 2015 Resolution B3
In this brief communication we provide the rationale for, and the outcome of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) resolution vote at the XXIX-th General Assembly in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 2015,
A Lack of Planets in 47 Tucanae from a Hubble Space Telescope Search
We report results from a large Hubble Space Telescope project to observe a significant (~34,000) ensemble of main-sequence stars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae with a goal of defining the
Eclipsing Binary Stars: Modeling and Analysis
This paper presents a meta-modelling approach to modeling Eclipsing Binaries based on the Wilson-Devinney Program and WD95 and discusses the structure of Light Curve Programs and the Outlook for the Future.
IAU 2015 Resolution B2 on Recommended Zero Points for the Absolute and Apparent Bolometric Magnitude Scales
The XXIXth IAU General Assembly in Honolulu adopted IAU 2015 Resolution B2 on recommended zero points for the absolute and apparent bolometric magnitude scales. The resolution was proposed by the IAU
IAU 2015 Resolution B3 on Recommended Nominal Conversion Constants for Selected Solar and Planetary Properties
Astronomers commonly quote the properties of celestial objects in units of parameters for the Sun, Jupiter, or the Earth. The resolution presented here was proposed by the IAU Inter-Division Working
Evaluating GAIA performances on eclipsing binaries. II. Orbits and stellar parameters for V781 Tau, UV Leo and GK Dra
The orbits and physical parameters of three close, double-lined G0 eclipsing binaries have been derived combining $H_{\rm P}, V_{\rm T}, B_{\rm T}$ photometry from the Hipparcos/Tycho mission with
The eclipsing binary AI Phoenicis : new results based on an improved light curve analysis program
The 24.6 day eclipsing binary AI Phe contains two sharp-lined stars of comparable luminosity which undergo total eclipse, and yet are well separated. Radial velocity, photometric, and ultraviolet
