Binary stars play unsubstitutable role in the study of universe. Firstly most of stars occurs in binaries and secondly they are the primary source of our knowledge of the fundamental properties of stars. Especially study of eclipsing binaries in the different evolutionary stages brings us unique information about evolution of stars. Photometry is the basic way how to study stars. The careful analyze of precise photometric observations obtained at Chinese and Czech observatories allow us describe more precisely events (period changes, oscillations of stars, behavior of accretion disc, light-time effect, apsidal motion etc.) in eclipsing binary system.
