    The book presents the substance of celestial bodies for the amateur observer: the planets, the stars, and the galaxies. The sun is the local link to the other stars, the nexus of cosmic evolution. The solar system is made up by the sun and all the celestial bodies orbit it. This system is of special interest for the observing amateur. • Motion of stars in a binary system • Thermal motion in a hot gas • Rotation of a star E.g. A H atom in a star is moving away from you at x cm s-1 = times c. At what wavelength will you see H? λ obs=(1+)= A Note that the Doppler shift only measures that.

    The same phenomena can be seen on the Sun, with periods of and years for the northern and southern hemispheres. Flip-flop phenomena are observed for both binary RS Canum Venaticorum variable RS CVn stars and single stars although the extent of the cycles are different between binary and singular stars.

    Luminous blue variable stars can undergo "giant outbursts" with dramatically increased mass loss and luminosity. η Carinae is the prototypical example, with P Cygni showing one or more similar outbursts – years ago, but dozens have now been catalogued in external galaxies. Many of these were initially classified as supernovae but re-examined because of unusual features. Most flare stars are dim red dwarfs. The more massive RS Canum Venaticorum variables (RS CVn) are also known to flare. Nine stars similar to the Sun have also been seen to undergo flare events. Flare stars are intrinsically faint, but have been found to distances of 1, light years from Earth.

An analysis of light variations of RS Canum Venaticorum binary systems by Daniel Bruce Caton Download PDF EPUB FB2

AM Canum Venaticorum (AM CVn) is a hydrogen-deficient cataclysmic variable binary star in the constellation of Canes is the type star of its class of variables, the AM Canum Venaticorum system consists of a white dwarf gaining matter via an accretion disk from a semi-degenerate or white dwarf llation: Canes Venatici.

As the rotation is not sensitive to the limb-darkening coefficient e and as these stars have spectral types near that of the Sun, we used the solar value for the wavelength region and took e= 3.

RESULTS We observed all the primaries and 5 of the secondaries of 33 RS CVn binary systems, and our results are given in TABLE by: 2. Rotational modulation and flares on RS canum venaticorum and by draconis stars: XIX. We present the results of BeppoSAX observations of the RS CVn binary systems CF Tuc and TY Pyx.

Abstract. The starspot model was used to account for the photometric variations of RS Canum Venaticorum binaries. The twelve light curves of eight epochs for RS CVn, eleven light curves of six epochs for AR Lac and twelve light curves of nine epochs for V Tau were analyzed to investigate the cyclic variations of these systems.

In mid-September ofa multiwavelength campaign was carried out on the coronally active RS Canum Venaticorum binary HR (K1 IV + G5 V; P = days), during commissioning of the High. The pulsating stars swell and shrink, affecting their brightness and spectrum. Pulsations are generally split into: radial, where the entire star expands and shrinks as a whole; and non-radial, where one part of the star expand while another part shrinks.

Depending on the type of pulsation and its location within the star, there is a natural or fundamental frequency which determines the period. We present multifrequency observations of the active binary RS CVn. Ultraviolet observations were obtained from the IUE data bank.

Optical observations were made at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (La Palma), while the infrared observations were obtained at the Observatorio del Teide (Tenerife). The continuum of RS CVn shows that both components behave in Author: A.

Giménez, V. Reglero, J. Fabregat. RS: RS Canum Venaticorum-type binary systems. The primaries are usually giants from late F to late K spectral type.

A significant property of these systems is the presence in their spectra of strong Ca II H and K emission lines of variable intensity, indicating increased chromospheric activity of the solar type.

Alpha-2 Canum Venaticorum variables Main article: Alpha-2 Canum Venaticorum variable Alpha-2 Canum Venaticorum (α 2 CVn) variables are main-sequence stars of spectral class B8–A7 that show fluctuations of to magnitudes (1% to 10%) due to changes in their magnetic fields. Variable stars are generally analysed using photometry, spectrophotometry and ements of their changes in brightness can be plotted to produce light regular variables, the period of variation and its amplitude can be very well established; for many variable stars, though, these quantities may vary slowly over time, or even from one period to the next.
