It is becoming clear that mass loss by radiation pressure on spectral lines is not only at work in normal O, B, and A stars but also in Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet stars. The importance of these line-driven winds relative to outbursts in the Luminous Blue Variable phase of evolution is under debate.

A visual binary star is a binary star for which the angular separation between the two components is great enough to permit them to be observed as a double star in a telescope, or even high-powered angular resolution of the telescope is an important factor in the detection of visual binaries, and as better angular resolutions are applied to binary star observations, an.

Some Wolf–Rayet stars of the carbon sequence ("WC"), especially those belonging to the latest types, are noticeable due to their production of dust. Usually this takes place on those belonging to binary systems as a product of the collision of the stellar winds forming the pair, [16] as is the case of the famous binary WR ; however this.

New spectroscopic and polarimetric data for the single-line spectroscopic binary HD are presented. the mass determinations that result from the study of WR binaries. of Some Wolf. Abstract. The Magellanic Clouds provide an ideal laboratory to study the properties of Wolf-Rayet stars.

In particular, the 25 WC/WO stars that they contain are nearly all of the same sub-class (21 WC4, one WC5, one WC6 and one WO in the Large Magellanic Cloud; one WO in the Small Magellanic Cloud).Cited by: 1. A photometric study and UV spectral analysis of the Wolf‐Rayet binary V Cyg Article (PDF Available) in Astronomische Nachrichten (6) - July with 53 Reads.

In this IAU Symposium on Wolf--Rayet stars, binary aspects received ample attention, notably because of the recognition that many observations of spectral and photometric variability at all accessible wavelengths are related to colliding winds or other forms of wind interaction.

The basic. Wolf–Rayet stars, often abbreviated as WR stars, are a rare heterogeneous set of stars with unusual spectra showing prominent broad emission lines of highly ionised helium and nitrogen or carbon.

The spectra indicate very high surface enhancement of heavy elements, depletion of hydrogen, and strong stellar winds. Their surface temperatures range f K to around. At the present time there are three known black holes in close binaries study of some Wolf-Rayet spectroscopic binaries book Wolf–Rayet stars: Cyg X-3, IC 10 X-1, NGC X-1, and probable fourth system CXOU J+ (Esposito et al., ).

In addition there are some systems that also are important to note for the aim of this paper: SS (the only known super-Eddington accretor Cited by: 2. Wolf–Rayet stars are named after the two French astronomers who first identified them in the mid-nineteenth century, and WR 22 is one of the most massive ones we know of.

Wolf-Rayet Stars and Interrelations with other Massive Stars in Galaxies by Karel A. van der Hucht,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. The problems involved in the determination of masses of the components of spectroscopic binaries are discussed.

Attention is paid both to methods which yield individual masses, and to statistical methods applicable where individual masses cannot be calculated because only one spectrum is observed or because the study of some Wolf-Rayet spectroscopic binaries book inclination is by: 4.

Introduction. Many astronomical observations of shifts of spectral lines cannot be explained by means of the ordinary Doppler an example, Reboul reports a list of refereed publications on "untrivial redshifts." Relativity can explain some observations, but a large number still remain unexplained.

The recently discovered burst of gravitational waves GW provides a good new chance to verify the current view on the evolution of close binary stars. Modern population synthesis codes help to study this evolution from two main sequence stars up to the formation of two final remnant degenerate dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes (Masevich & Tutukov, ).

To study the. a study of Wolf-Rayet stars, the change in a supernova over time as it dims, high resolution solar spectrum showing Fraunhofer lines, using spectra to differentiate between eclipsing binary stars and exoplanets, solar spectra and the sun’s rotation, or; explore stellar class classification by the B – V method outlined above.

A star is an astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own nearest star to Earth is the other stars are visible to the naked eye from Earth during the night, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points in the sky due to their immense distance from Earth.

Historically, the most prominent stars were grouped into. reason, some of the detection methods discussed in the present review only apply to L&IM binary systems; conversely, methods that are specific t o massive binaries (Wolf-Rayet binaries, High-mass X-ray binaries, binaries involving black holes or pulsars) will not be addressed here.

This review is organized as follows. Close Binary Stars: Observations and Interpretation by M. Plavec,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Janu –J BY HELMUT OLIN was a stellar spectroscopist who spent his entire research career (–82) observing at the Mt.

Wilson and Palomar observatories. He is known for being the first person to derive activity cycles in other stars analogous to the year solar cycle. Wolf–Rayet stars (WRs) represent the end of a massive star’s life as it is about to turn into a supernova.

Obtaining complete samples of such stars across a large range of metallicities poses observational challenges, but presents us with an exacting way to test current stellar evolutionary theories.

Since then, also the evolution of close binary systems, such as X-ray binaries, Wolf-Rayet binaries and binary pulsars, has been researched with priority in : Springer Netherlands.

a few detached binary stars which have sensitive spectroscopic and photometric data to find absolute parameters for checking differences between single and binary evolution models. In this study, we generate new models by using the MESA. Finally, we show effect and differences of rotation, binarity effects, mass loss and RLOF's in detail.

Masses can be directly determined only for binary stars on the basis of the study of their orbits. For spectroscopic binaries, measuring the Doppler shift of the spectral lines makes it possible to determine the period of revolution of the components and the projection of the maximum velocity of each component on the line of sight.

'Spectroscopy is to astronomy what fingerprints are to forensic investigators.
