Astrophysical analysis of data on visual binaries to study stellar structureand formation using data from the "Hipparcos" satellite and modern ground-based CCD observing techniques


Research has been conducted on the properties of visualbinary stars, with the emphasis on astrophysically important parameters and astronomical data as a byproduct. The photometric and astronomic possibilities of charge coupled devices (CCD) have been explored in connection with visual binaries and a user friendly procedure has been developed to treat photometric data.
