We will concentrate in our project on precise photometric measurements made using CCD camera or photoelectric photometer attached to the telescope at Mt. Suhora observatory (Cracow Pedagogical University). These data together with spectroscopic observations (radial velocities) as mentioned above we will processed using new methods (especially in variable star research) of data processing (principal components analysis, weighted robust regression...). Then we build the model of studied system by the help of Phoebe code (based on widely spread Wilson-Devinney code). The essential part of the project is presentation of our result in papers, on conferences. We also organize a short workshop for our team and collaborators (students) devoted to the method of correct processing of observational data.


The aim of the MEB 050819 project was to obtain precise photometric measurements of selected eclipsing binaries and stars with exoplanets. Solving it we published 2 articles and presented 6 contributions on seminars and conferences.
