We present the physical properties for 2281 northern eclipsing binary (EB) stars with eclipsing Algol (EA)-type light-curve (LC) morphology, based on data extracted from the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS). Our study is based on the analysis of the Eclipsing Binary via Artificial Intelligence (EBAI) artificial neural network (ANN) tool. An intensive search for the optimal ANN topology was performed. In order to feed the ANN with LCs that are representative of the CSS observations, two independent…

Detection of period variations of eclipsing binaries in the Catalina Sky Survey

We present 126 eclipsing binary candidates among 4683 Catalina Sky Surveys (CSS) detached and semi-detached eclipsing binary systems (EBs) showing cyclic or quadratic period variations over a 12 yr

What we can learn from eclipsing binaries in large surveys: The case of EA Catalina systems

An updated and more detailed catalog of 4680 Northern EAs in the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS) is presented, new systems, revised period determination and ephemerides, system morphology classification based on machine learning techniques, computation of principal physical parameters with the EBAI (Eclipsing Binary via Artificial Intelligence) and detection of eclipse timing variations.

An investigation of low-mass-ratio EW systems from the Catalina Sky Survey.

We have conducted a survey of overcontact binary systems (EW) with mass ratio = 0.25 from the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS) that are considered strong merger candidates and are probable progenitors of FK

Formation of magnetized spatial structures in the Beta Lyrae system III . Reflection of magnetically controlled matter in circumbinary structures in helium lines , in particular arising from metastable levels

Spatial gaseous structures in the Beta Lyrae system have been studied with the fact of change in the longitudinal component of the donor’s magnetic field during the orbital period in mind. The



An Updated Catalog of 4680 Northern Eclipsing Binaries with Algol-type Light-curve Morphology in the Catalina Sky Surveys

We present an updated catalog of 4680 northern eclipsing binaries (EBs) with Algol-type light-curve (LC) morphology (i.e., with well-defined beginnings and ends of primary and secondary eclipses),

Eclipsing binaries in open clusters – III. V621 Per in χ Persei

V621Persei is a detached eclipsing binary in the open clusterPersei which is com- posed of an early B-type giant star and a main sequence secondary component. From high-resolution spectroscopic

The Catalogue of Stellar Parameters from the Detached Double-Lined Eclipsing Binaries in the Milky Way

Abstract The most accurate stellar astrophysical parameters were collected from the solutions of the light and the radial velocity curves of 257 detached double-lined eclipsing binaries in the Milky

Tracing the structure of the Milky Way with detached eclipsing binaries from the VVV survey – I. The method and initial results

We present the first results of a project aiming to trace the spatial structure of the Milky Way using detached eclipsing binaries (DEBs) as distance indicators. A sample of DEBs from the OGLE-II


We present a distance determination to the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) based on an analysis of four detached, long-period, late-type eclipsing binaries discovered by the Optical Gravitational

Gaia eclipsing binary and multiple systems. Two-Gaussian models applied to OGLE-III eclipsing binary light curves in the Large Magellanic Cloud

The advent of large scale multi-epoch surveys raises the need for automated light curve (LC) processing. This is particularly true for eclipsing binaries (EBs), which form one of the most populated

Artificial Intelligence Approach to the Determination of Physical Properties of Eclipsing Binaries. I. The EBAI Project

The artificial neural network (ANN) approach is described which is able to surmount the human bottleneck and permit EB-based scientific yield to keep pace with future data rates and this first paper in the eclipsing binaries via artificial intelligence (EBAI) series focuses on detached EBs.

RR Lyrae Variables in the Inner Halo. I. Photometry

I present V-band CCD photometry for a sample of 103 RR Lyrae variables selected from the General Catalogue of Variable Stars to lie in the inner halo of the Galaxy (3 kpc < RGC < 6 kpc). I also

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
