We present spectroscopic observations of the massive multiple system HD\,167971, located in the open cluster NGC\,6604. The brighter component of the triple system is the overcontact eclipsing binary MY\,Ser with an orbital period of 3.32\,days. The radial velocities and the previously published UBV data obtained by \citet{may10} and the UBVRI light curves by \citet{dav88} are analysed for the physical properties of the components. We determine the following absolute parameters: for the primary…

V745 Cassiopean interacting young massive binary in a multiple-star system

We present spectroscopic observations of the massive early type system V745\,Cas, embedded in a multiple star system. The brightest star of the system is the eclipsing binary V745\,Cas with an

Resolved astrometric orbits of ten O-type binaries

Aims. Our long-term aim is to derive model-independent stellar masses and distances for long period massive binaries by combining apparent astrometric orbit with double-lined radial velocity


We report on both high-precision photometry from the Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) space telescope and ground-based spectroscopy of the triple system δ Ori A, consisting of a

A VLBI study of the wind-wind collision region in the massive multiple HD 167971

Context. Colliding winds in massive binaries are able to accelerate particles up to relativistic speeds as the result of the interaction between the winds of the different stellar components. HD

MONOS: Multiplicity Of Northern O-type Spectroscopic systems. II. Orbit review and analysis for 35 single-lined spectroscopic binary systems and candidates.

Context. Multiplicity in massive stars is key to understanding the chemical and dynamical evolution of galaxies. Among massive stars, those of O type play a crucial role due to their high masses and

Determination of the galactic rotation curve from OB stars

We consider three samples of O- and B-type stars from the solar neighborhood 0.6–4 kpc for which we have taken the distances, line-of-sight velocities, and proper motions from published sources. The

Long-term XMM–Newton investigation of two particle-accelerating colliding-wind binaries in NGC 6604: HD 168112 and HD 167971

The long-term (over more than one decade) X-ray emission from two massive stellar systems known to be particle accelerators is investigated using XMM-Newton. Their X-ray properties are interpreted

An investigation into the fraction of particle accelerators among colliding-wind binaries - Towards an extension of the catalogue

Particle-accelerating colliding-wind binaries (PACWBs) are multiple systems made of early-type stars able to accelerate particles up to relativistic velocities. The relativistic particles can

Dynamical Evolution of Asteroids and Meteoroids Using the Yarkovsky Effect

The Yarkovsky effect is a thermal radiation force which causes objects to undergo semimajor axis drift and spin up/down as a function of their spin, orbit, and material properties. This mechanism can



Sixty four nights of UBV photometry of early-type stars at La Sila†

UBV measurements of early-type stars, mostly eclipsing binaries, obtained at La Silla in the years 1990 to 1994 with the ESO 50 cm telescope are presented. Most of these data were already used in our

From Interacting Binaries to Exoplanets: Essential Modeling Tools

We present a photometric study of the newly discovered low-mass eclipsing binary NSVS 01031772 Cam based on observations obtained at Ondřejov observatory from 2007 – 2011. Most determinations of the

Absolute dimensions of detached eclipsing binaries – I. The metallic‐lined system WW Aurigae

WWAurigae is a detached eclipsing binary composed of two metallic-lined A-type stars orbiting each other every 2.5 days. We have determined the masses and radii of both components to accuracies of

The Serpens OB2 Association and Its Thermal “Chimney”

UBVRI photometry and MK spectral types have been obtained for a nearly complete sample of the massive star population of the Serpens OB2 association. This relatively neglected association is found to
