ASAS is a long term project to monitor bright variable stars over the whole sky. It has discovered 50,122 variables brighter than V < 14 mag south of declination +28 degrees, and among them 11,099 eclipsing binaries. We present a preliminary analysis of 5,384 contact, 2,957 semi-detached, and 2,758 detached systems. The statistics of the distribution provides a qualitative confirmation of decades old idea of Flannery and Lucy that W UMa type binaries evolve through a series of relaxation… 
Eclipsing Binaries in the MACHO Database: New Periods and Classifications for 3031 Systems in the Large Magellanic Cloud
Eclipsing binaries offer a unique opportunity to determine fundamental physical parameters of stars by using the constraints on the geometry of the systems. Here we present a reanalysis of publicly
KEPLER ECLIPSING BINARY STARS. I. CATALOG AND PRINCIPAL CHARACTERIZATION OF 1879 ECLIPSING BINARIES IN THE FIRST DATA RELEASE
The Kepler space mission is devoted to finding Earth-size planets orbiting other stars in their habitable zones. Its large, 105 deg2 field of view features over 156,000 stars that are observed
Photometric Study of Three Short-Period Eclipsing Binaries from the ASAS Catalogue
We present the results of our study of three previously unstudied short-period eclipsing binaries, namely: ASAS 110609 ﹣ 2045.3, ASAS105331 ﹣ 7424.7, and ASAS 130057 + 2120.3. Using the visual
Formation and Evolution of W Ursae Majoris Contact Binaries
The origin and evolution of WUMa systems are discussed based on All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) data and the mean kinematic ages of four subgroups of 97 field contact binaries (FCBs). The period
The Berlin Exoplanet Search Telescope II Catalog of Variable Stars. I. Characterization of Three Southern Target Fields
A photometric survey of three southern target fields with BEST?II yielded the detection of 2406 previously unknown variable stars and an additional 617 stars with suspected variability. This study
Properties OF M31. V. 298 eclipsing binaries from PAndromeda
The goal of this work is to conduct a photometric study of eclipsing binaries in M31. We apply a modified box-fitting algorithm to search for eclipsing binary candidates and determine their period.
PHOTOMETRY OF VARIABLE STARS FROM THE THU-NAOC TRANSIENT SURVEY. I. THE FIRST TWO YEARS
In this paper, we report the detections of stellar variabilities from the first two years of observations of a sky area of about 1300 square degrees from the Tsinghua University-NAOC Transient
PHOTOMETRY OF VARIABLE STARS FROM DOME A, ANTARCTICA
Dome A on the Antarctic plateau is likely one of the best observing sites on Earth thanks to the excellent atmospheric conditions present at the site during the long polar winter night. We present
Deep census of variable stars in a VLT/VIMOS field in Carina
Aims. We searched for variable stars in deep V -band images of a field towards the Galactic plane in Carina. Methods. The images were taken with the VIMOS instrument at ESO VLT during 4 contiguous
Lifetime of short-period binaries measured from their Galactic kinematics
As a significant fraction of stars are in multiple systems, binaries play a crucial role in stellar evolution. Among short-period (<1 day) binary characteristics, age remains one of the most
