Testing convection in stellar models using detached eclipsing binaries

Testing convection in stellar models using detached eclipsing binaries Thumbnail


Abstract

The fundamental properties of detached eclipsing binary stars can be measured very accurately, which could make them important objects for constraining the treatment of convection in theoretical stellar models. However, only four or five pieces of information can be found for the average system, which is not enough. We discuss studies of more interesting and useful objects: eclipsing binaries in clusters and eclipsing binaries with pulsating components.
