On the rates of Type Ia supernovae originating from white dwarf collisions in quadruple star systems

We consider the evolution of stellar hierarchical quadruple systems in the 2+2 (two binaries orbiting each other's barycentre) and 3+1 (triple orbited by a fourth star) configurations. In our

MASSES, LUMINOSITIES, AND ORBITAL COPLANARITIES OF THE μ ORIONIS QUADRUPLE-STAR SYSTEM FROM PHASES DIFFERENTIAL ASTROMETRY

μ Orionis was identified by spectroscopic studies as a quadruple-star system. Seventeen high-precision differential astrometry measurements of μ Ori have been collected by the Palomar High-precision

The GALAH survey: scientific motivation

The Galactic Archaeology with HERMES (GALAH) survey is a large high-resolution spectroscopic survey using the newly commissioned High Efficiency and Resolution Multi-Element Spectrograph (HERMES) on

The Gaia-ESO Survey: a kinematical and dynamical study of four young open clusters

Context. The origin and dynamical evolution of star clusters is an important topic in stellar astrophysics. Several models have been proposed in order to understand the formation of bound and unbound

The Gaia-ESO Survey: open clusters in Gaia -DR1 - a way forward to stellar age calibration ⋆

Context. Determination and calibration of the ages of stars, which heavily rely on stellar evolutionary models, are very challenging, while repre- senting a crucial aspect in many astrophysical

BD –22 5866: A Low-Mass, Quadruple-lined Spectroscopic and Eclipsing Binary

We report our discovery of an extremely rare, low-mass, quadruple-lined spectroscopic binary BD –22 5866 (=NLTT 53279, integrated spectral type = M0 V), found during an ongoing search for the

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

VW LMi: tightest quadruple system known. Light-time effect and possible secular changes of orbits

Tightest known quadruple system VW LMi consists of contact eclipsing binary with P 12 = 0.477551 d and detached binary with P 34 = 7.93063 d revolving in rather tight, 355.0-d orbit. This paper

Atomic and molecular data for optical stellar spectroscopy

High-precision spectroscopy of large stellar samples plays a crucial role for several topical issues in astrophysics. Examples include studying the chemical structure and evolution of the Milky Way

The Gaia-ESO Survey: open clusters in Gaia-DR1

The methodologies described, taking advantage of Gaia-DR1 and the Gaia-ESO Survey data, enable the comparison of observed open star cluster sequences with stellar evolutionary models to demonstrate the potential of combining Gaia and ground-based spectroscopic datasets.
