Publisher: New York : Springer, ©1999.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book focuses on the mathematical formulation of astrophysical models for the light curves of eclipsing binary stars, and on the algorithms for evaluating and exploiting such models. This book will provide astronomers, both amateur and professional, with a guide for specifying an astrophysical model for a set of observations, selecting an algorithm to determine the parameters of the model, and estimating the  Read more...

Abstract:

Astronomers learn much of what they know about the mass, brightness, and size of stars by observing binary systems, in which two stars orbit each other, periodically cutting off the others light.  Read more...
