Beschreibung:

Modeling and Analysis of Eclipsing Binary Stars provides a comprehensive review of the physical and observational aspects of eclipsing binaries, and the modeling code, PHOEBE (PHysics Of Eclipsing BinariEs), that is used by a large number of researchers in this field. Aimed at students, researchers and astronomers, this book is the foundation of knowledge for eclipsing binaries and their subsequent modeling.




The fascinating and observationally spectacular world of binary stars is a vast and beautiful one that is a significant aspect of many astrophysical studies. Modeling and Analysis of Eclipsing Binary Stars gives a comprehensive analysis and description of the science behind eclipsing binaries. It also explores the assumptions and the difficulties that can occur when using the modeling principles of the classical codes as well as introducing PHOEBE (the PHysics Of Eclipsing BinariEs) – a modern suite for modeling binary stars. PHOEBE was conceived by Andrej Prša and his collaborators, and has become one of the standard tools in the eclipsing binary field.

This book provides a constructive and intriguing contribution to the expansion of the modeling approaches of binaries and our subsequent understanding of the processes that govern stellar evolution. Aimed at a wide audience, Prša provides new astronomers with the knowledge and background of eclipsing binary stars as well as facilitating researchers a better understanding of the intricate details behind eclipsing binary models.
