The light curves obtained at the Maidanak Observatory during 1979-94 show a slight asymmetry around the secondary minima and a small difference in the height of the successive maxima. The light curves are analysed in the framework of the Roche computer model (Djurasevic, 1992Ap&SS.196..241D) by applying the inverse-problem method (Djurasevic, 1992Ap&SS.197...17D) based on Marquardt's (1963, J. Soc. Ind. Appl. Math. 11(2), 431) algorithm. The analysis shows that RY Sct system is in an overcontact configuration (fover∼33%) with q=m2/m1=mcool/mhot=3.3 and i∼84.3°, generating total-annular eclipses. The basic parameters of the system and of the active region are estimated for all individual U, B, V and R light curves. Our results suggested a mass exchange between the components and mass loss through the outer Lagrangian point L3. This could be taken as a possible mechanism in the formation of the circumstellar envelope of toroidal form lying in the orbital plane of the system.
