- Title: The fractional dimensions of close binary systems components: the reliability of their determination
- Keyword(s): BINARIES, ECLIPSING, FUNDAMENTAL PARAMETERS
- Pages: 50 -- 56
The accuracy of determining the fractional dimensions of close binary
systems is analysed. The analysis is based on the catalogue of modern
lightcurve synthesis photometric solutions of close binary systems. Only
a small percentage of the fractional dimensions is derived with an accuracy
attainable by using photoelectric photometry and modern lightcurve synthesis
methods. The sources of the inaccuracy are discussed and some recommendations
for improvement are given.
