Apsidal motion and a light curve solution for eighteen SMC eccentric eclipsing binaries
Aims. The Danish 1.54-meter telescope at the La Silla observatory was used for photometric monitoring of selected eccentric eclipsing binaries located in the Small Magellanic Cloud. The new times of
Period changes in six semi-detached Algol-type binaries
Triple-Star Candidates Among the Kepler Binaries
We present the results of a search through the photometric database of Kepler eclipsing binaries looking for evidence of hierarchical triple-star systems. The presence of a third star orbiting the
A Computational Guide to Physics of Eclipsing Binaries. I. Demonstrations and Perspectives
PHOEBE (PHysics Of Eclipsing BinariEs) is a modeling package for eclipsing binary stars, built on top of the widely used WD program of Wilson & Devinney. This introductory paper gives an overview of
New limb-darkening coefficients for modeling binary star light curves
We present monochromatic, passband-specific, and bolometric limb-darkening coefficients for a linear as well as nonlinear logarithmic and square root limb-darkening laws. These coefficients,
The N2K consortium. IV. New temperatures and metallicities for more than 100,000 FGK dwarfs
We have created specialized target lists for radial velocity surveys that are biased toward stars that (1) possess planets and (2) are easiest to observe with current detection techniques. We use a
All-Sky Spectrally Matched UBVRI - ZY and u′ g′ r′ i′ z′ Magnitudes for Stars in the Tycho2 Catalog
We present fitted UBVRI - ZY and u′ g′ r′ i′ z′ magnitudes, spectral types, and distances for 2.4 million stars, derived from synthetic photometry of a library spectrum that best matches the Tycho2
Extragalactic eclipsing binaries: astrophysical laboratories
The Northern Sky Variability Survey (NSVS) is a temporal record of the sky over the optical magnitude range from 8 to 15.5. It was conducted in the course of the first-generation Robotic Optical
The WASP Project and the SuperWASP Cameras
The SuperWASP cameras are wide‐field imaging systems at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, and at the Sutherland Station of the South African
