We present the results of two color VR observation of the Algol-type binary system WZ Crv (12h44m15.19s, -21d25m35.4s) which were obtained using the remotely controlled telescope TOA-150 of Tzec Maun Observatory. We determined the moments of individual minima, the orbital period and its derivative, the initial epoch, color indices V-R and temperature estimates of the components. Also we noticed that the phase curve is asymmetric: the second maximum is higher than the first one. It indicates…

Phenomenological modeling of the light curves of algol-type eclipsing binary stars
We propose a special class of functions for mathematical modeling of periodic signals of a special type with a nonuniform distribution of the arguments. This method has been developed for determining
