Single-line spectroscopic binaries have recently contributed to stellar-mass black hole discovery, independently of the X-ray transient method. We report the identification of a single-line binary system, LTD064402+245919, with an orbital period of 14.50 days. The observed component is a subgiant with a mass of 2.77 ± 0.68 M ⊙, radius 15.5 ± 2.5 R ⊙, effective temperature T eff 4500 ± 200 K, and surface gravity log g 2.5 ± 0.25 dex. The discovery makes use of the Large Sky Area Multi-Object… 
The Spectroscopic Binaries from the LAMOST Medium-resolution Survey. I. Searching for Double-lined Spectroscopic Binaries with a Convolutional Neural Network
We developed a convolutional neural network model to distinguish the double-lined spectroscopic binaries (SB2s) from others based on single-exposure medium-resolution spectra (R ∼ 7500). The training


Mining for Candidates of Galactic Stellar-mass Black Hole Binaries with LAMOST
We study the prospects of searching for black hole (BH) binary systems with a stellar-mass BH and a non-compact visible companion, by utilizing the spectroscopic data of Large Sky Area Multi-Object
Eclipsing binaries in the All Sky Automated Survey catalogue
The All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) is a long-term project to monitor bright variable stars over the whole sky. It has discovered 50 099 variables brighter than V < 14 mag south of declination +28 ◦
Discovery and characterization of 3000+ main-sequence binaries from APOGEE spectra
We develop a data-driven spectral model for identifying and characterizing spatially unresolved multiple-star systems and apply it to APOGEE DR13 spectra of main-sequence stars. Binaries and triples
A collection of model stellar spectra for spectral types B to early-M
Context. Models of stellar spectra are necessary for interpreting light from individual stars, planets, integrated stellar populations, nebulae, and the interstellar medium. Aims. We provide a
Searching for Black Hole Candidates by LAMOST and ASAS-SN
Most dynamically confirmed stellar-mass black holes and the candidates were originally selected from X-ray outbursts. In the present work, we search for black hole candidates in the LAMOST survey by
A Method to Search for Black Hole Candidates with Giant Companions by LAMOST
We propose a method to search for stellar-mass black hole (BH) candidates with giant companions from spectroscopic observations. Based on the stellar spectra of LAMOST Data Release 6, we obtain a
Zwicky Transient Facility and Globular Clusters: the Period–Luminosity and Period–Luminosity–Color Relations for Late-type Contact Binaries
In this work, we aimed to derive the gri-band period–luminosity (PL) and period–luminosity–color (PLC) relations for late-type contact binaries, for the first time, located in globular clusters,

Radial velocity (RV) is among the most fundamental physical quantities obtainable from stellar spectra and is rather important in the analysis of time-domain phenomena. LAMOST Medium-resolution
The ASAS-SN catalogue of variable stars I: The Serendipitous Survey
The All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN) is the first optical survey to routinely monitor the whole sky with a cadence of $\sim2-3$ days down to V$\lesssim17$ mag. ASAS-SN has monitored
A package for the automated classification of periodic variable stars
We present a machine learning package for the classification of periodic variable stars. Our package is intended to be general: it can classify any single band optical light curve comprising at least
