We present a quintuple star system that contains two eclipsing binaries. The unusual architecture includes two stellar images separated by 11 arcsec on the sky: EPIC 212651213 and EPIC 212651234. The more easterly image (212651213) actually hosts both eclipsing binaries which are resolved within that image at 0.09 arcsec, while the westerly image (212651234) appears to be single in adaptive optics (AO), speckle imaging, and radial velocity (RV) studies. The ‘A’ binary is circular with a 5.1-d… 
EPIC 220204960: a quadruple star system containing two strongly interacting eclipsing binaries
We present a strongly interacting quadruple system associated with the K2 target EPIC 220204960. The K2 target itself is a Kp = 12.7-mag star at Teff ≃ 6100 K, which we designate as ‘B-N’ (blue
EPIC 219217635: A Doubly Eclipsing Quadruple System Containing an Evolved Binary
We have discovered a doubly eclipsing, bound, quadruple star system in the field of K2 Campaign 7. EPIC 219217635 is a stellar image with Kp = 12.7 that contains an eclipsing binary (`EB') with P A =
The Age of the KIC 7177553 System
KIC 7177553 is a quadruple system containing two binaries of orbital periods 16.5 and 18 days. All components have comparable masses and are slowly rotating with spectral types of ~G2V. The longer
Doubly eclipsing systems
Context. Only several doubly eclipsing quadruple stellar systems are known to date, and no dedicated effort to characterize population properties of these interesting objects has yet been made. Aims.
EPIC 203868608: A Low-mass Quadruple Star System in the Upper Scorpius OB Association
Young multiple star systems provide excellent testing grounds for theories of star formation and evolution. EPIC 203868608 was previously studied~\citep{David2016} as a triple star system in the
A TESS Dress Rehearsal: Planetary Candidates and Variables from K2 Campaign 17
We produce light curves for all ~34,000 targets observed with K2 in Campaign 17 (C17), identifying 34 planet candidates, 184 eclipsing binaries, and 222 other periodic variables. The location of the
Absolute properties of RU Cnc revisited: an active RS CVn-type eclipsing binary with red giant branch and main-sequence components
We present observations and analysis of an RS CVn-type double-lined eclipsing binary system, RU Cnc. The system has been observed for over a century. High-quality long-cadence observations, newly
Know the Planet, Know the Star: Precise Stellar Densities from Kepler Transit Light Curves
The properties of a transiting planet's host star are written in its transit light curve. The light curve can reveal the stellar density and the limb darkening profile in addition to the
Gravitational Waves from Stellar Black Hole Binaries and the Impact on Nearby Sun-like Stars
We investigate the impact of resonant gravitational waves on quadrupole acoustic modes of Sun-like stars located nearby stellar black hole binary systems (such as GW150914 and GW151226). We find that
Overview and comparison of approaches towards the planar restricted five-body problem with primaries forming an axisymmetric four-body central configuration
The aim of this paper is to present recent results on the restricted five-body problem where the primaries are located at a known central configuration having the x $x$ -axis as symmetry axis, so


KIC 7177553: a quadruple system of two close binaries
KIC 7177553 was observed by the Kepler satellite to be an eclipsing eccentric binary star system with an 18-day orbital period. Recently, an eclipse timing study of the Kepler binaries has revealed
Updated study of the quintuple system V994 Herculis
Aims: We present a new updated study of the unique quintuple system of two eclipsing binaries, V994 Her. Methods: Based on new obtained photometric observations, we analysed the period variations of
Orbits of subsystems in four hierarchical multiple stars
Seven spectroscopic orbits in nearby solar-type multiple stars are presented. The primary of the chromospherically active star HIP 9642 is a 4.8-day double-lined pair; the outer 420-yr visual orbit
We report spectroscopic observations of HD 27638 B, the secondary in a visual binary in which the physically associated primary (separation ~19'') is a B9 V star. The secondary shows strong Li λ6708
KIC 4247791: a SB4 system with two eclipsing binaries (2EBs) - A quadruple system?
KIC 4247791 is an eclipsing binary observed by the Kepler satellite mission. We wish to determine the nature of its components and in particular the origin of a shallow dip in its Kepler light curve
The Kepler Mission provides nearly continuous monitoring of ~156,000 objects with unprecedented photometric precision. Coincident with the first data release, we presented a catalog of 1879 eclipsing
We present an updated spectroscopic orbit and a new visual orbit for the double-lined spectroscopic binary σ2 Coronae Borealis (CrB) based on radial velocity measurements at the Oak Ridge Observatory

Our discovery of 1SWASP J093010.78+533859.5 as a probable doubly eclipsing quadruple system containing a contact binary with P~0.23 d and a detached binary with P~1.31 d was announced in 2013.
Triple-Star Candidates Among the Kepler Binaries
We present the results of a search through the photometric database of eclipsing Kepler binaries (Prsa et al. 2011; Slawson et al. 2011) looking for evidence of hierarchical triple star systems. The
