It comprehensively reviews methods for calculating orbits, the Roche model, ideas about mass exchange and loss, methods for analysing light curves, the masses and dimensions of different binary systems, and imaging the surfaces of stars and accretion structures.

Even if equations frighten you, you might find the graphical and pictorial information useful. This textbook is the first to provide a pedagogical and comprehensive introduction to binary stars.

This volume offers advanced undergraduate and graduate students a thorough introduction to binary stars that will aid their learning of stellar astrophysics, stellar structure and evolution, and observational astrophysics.

Researchers will also find this to be an authoritative reference. His treatment is closely tied to observational data, so that you will be motivated to follow the analyses he provides of light curve shapes. The book is about as clear as it can be considering the detail provided.

An Introduction to Close Binary Stars

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 textbook provides advanced students with a thorough introduction to binary stars and a lucid companion for courses on stellar astrophysics, stellar structure and evolution, and observational astrophysics.

I would recommend this book to any astronomer who studies close binary stars or wants a better understanding of them. However, when I was teaching the mechanics portion of an introductory astrophysics course I pulled it down and found it very useful for its discussion of the spectroscopic determination of the masses and orbital parameters from observational data. No trivia or quizzes yet. The author combines theory and observations at all wavelengths to develop a unified understanding of binaries of all categories.
