Our discovery of 1SWASP J093010.78+533859.5 as a probable doubly eclipsing quadruple system containing a contact binary with P~0.23 d and a detached binary with P~1.31 d was announced in 2013. Subsequently Koo et al. confirmed the detached binary spectroscopically and identified a fifth set of static spectral lines at its location, corresponding to a further non-eclipsing component of the system. Here we present new spectroscopic and photometric observations, allowing confirmation of the… 

The Quadruple-lined, Doubly Eclipsing System V482 Persei

We report spectroscopic and differential photometric observations of the A-type system V482 Per, which reveal it to be a rare hierarchical quadruple system containing two eclipsing binaries. One

SuperWASP discovery and SALT confirmation of a semi-detached eclipsing binary that contains a δ Scuti star

We searched the SuperWASP archive for objects displaying multiply periodic photometric variations. Specifically we sought evidence for eclipsing binary stars displaying a further non-harmonically

BVRI Photometric Observations and Study of the Newly Discovered W UMa Type Eclipsing Binary of Multiple System 1SWASP J093010.78+533859.5

New BVRI light curves of the W UMa type eclipsing binary of multiple system 1SWASP J093010.78+533859.5 (GSC 0380-00759) have been constructed based on CCD observations obtained using 1.88 m reflector

KMTNet Time-series Photometry of the Doubly Eclipsing Binary Stars Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud

We report the results of photometric observations for doubly eclipsing binaries OGLE-LMC-ECL-15674 and OGLE-LMC-ECL-22159, both of which are composed of two pairs (designated A&B) of a detached

A method for estimating masses ofWUrsaeMajoris-type binaries

Masses of W Ursae Majoris-type (W UMa) binaries play a critical role in investigating stellar dynamical evolutionary status. In this paper, we combine the PARSEC (PAdova and TRieste Stellar Evolution


Seven spectroscopic orbits in nearby solar-type multiple stars are presented. The primary of the chromospherically active star HIP 9642 is a 4.8 day double-lined pair; the outer 420 year visual orbit

Light curve analysis of six totally eclipsing W UMa binaries

We analyze multicolor light curves of six totally eclipsing, short-period W UMa binaries and derive, for the first time, their orbital and stellar parameters. The mass ratios are established

Doubly eclipsing systems

Context. Only several doubly eclipsing quadruple stellar systems are known to date, and no dedicated effort to characterize population properties of these interesting objects has yet been made. Aims.

The Arches cluster revisited

We have carried out a spectroscopic variability survey of some of the most massive stars in the Arches cluster, using K-band observations obtained with SINFONI on the VLT. One target, F2, exhibits

Photometric study of three ultrashort-period contact binaries

We carried out high-precision photometric observations of three eclipsing ultrashort-period contact binaries (USPCBs). Theoretical models were fitted to the light curves by means of the



Parameters of two low-mass contact eclipsing binaries near the short-period limit

The two objects 1SWASP J150822.80−054236.9 and 1SWASP J160156.04+202821.6 were initially detected from their SuperWASP archived light curves as candidate eclipsing binaries with periods close to the


Among quadruples or higher multiplicity stars, only a few doubly eclipsing binary systems have been discovered. They are important targets for understanding the formation and evolution of multiple

Period decrease in three SuperWASP eclipsing binary candidates near the short-period limit

SuperWASP light curves for 53 W UMa-type eclipsing binary candidates, identified in previous work as being close to the contact binary short-period limit, were studied, and period decrease was observed in three objects.

V994 Herculis: the multiple system with a quadruple‐lined spectrum and a double eclipsing feature

We report the discovery of a multiple system with a quadruple-lined spectrum and a double eclipsing feature. Our photometric and high-resolution spectroscopic data show that V994 Herculis (V994 Her;

KIC 4247791: a SB4 system with two eclipsing binaries (2EBs) - A quadruple system?

KIC 4247791 is an eclipsing binary observed by the Kepler satellite mission. We wish to determine the nature of its components and in particular the origin of a shallow dip in its Kepler light curve

Short period eclipsing binary candidates identified using SuperWASP

Light curves and periods of 53 candidates for short period eclipsing binary stars identified by SuperWASP are presented, including 48 newly identified objects with periods <2 × 10^4 s and four other previously known W UMa stars.

One, two or three stars? An investigation of an unusual eclipsing binary candidate undergoing dramatic period changes

We report our investigation of 1SWASP J234401.81−212229.1, a variable with a 18 461.6 s period. After identific ation in a 2011 search of the SuperWASP archive for main-sequence eclipsing binary

Discovery of a double eclipsing binary with periods near a 3:2 ratio

The evolution of multiple stellar systems can be driven by Kozai cycles and tidal friction (KCTF), which shrink the orbit of the inner binary. There is an interesting possibility that two close

Period and period change measurements for 143 SuperWASP eclipsing binary candidates near the short-period limit and discovery of a doubly eclipsing quadruple system

Building on previous work, a new search of the SuperWASP archive was carried out to identify eclipsing binary systems near the short-period limit. 143 candidate objects were detected with orbital

Multicolour time series photometry of the variable star 1SWASP J234401.81−212229.1

1SWASP J234401.81-212229.1 may be one of a handful of contact binaries comprising two M dwarfs. Modelling of the available observations is complicated by the fact that the radiation of the eclipsing
