I am working through the interacting binary part of the book now, but have found the book to be one of introductlon ones I turn to when I need a decent explanation of the mathematics before hitting the technical literature.

Close binary stars – a historical review; 2. This wasn’t quite possible from the other textbooks I used including Carroll and Ostlie and the new textbook by Bradt which covered the same material but didn’t develop it as fully.

Cambridge Studies in American Literature and Culture: They are of fundamental importance because they allow stellar masses, radii and luminosities to be measured directly, and explain a host of diverse and energetic phenomena including X-ray binaries, cataclysmic variables, novae, symbiotic stars, and some types of supernovae.

This book was the binaryy to provide a pedagogical and comprehensive introduction to binary stars. Description Binary systems of stars are as common as single stars. Binary systems of stars are as common as single introductoin.

His treatment is closely tied to observational data, so that you will be motivated to follow the analyses he provides of light curve shapes. It was just right for explaining to the students in the class how to calculate masses, eccentricities, and the other orbital parameters from data available in the literature.

Even if equations frighten you, you might find the graphical and pictorial information useful.
