J/ApJ/628/411  Identification and analysis of eclipsing binaries  (Devor+, 2005)

Solutions for 10,000 eclipsing binaries in the bulge fields of OGLE II using DEBiL. Devor J. <Astrophys. J., 628, 411-425 (2005)> =2005ApJ...628..411D
ADC_Keywords: Binaries, eclipsing ; Surveys Keywords: binaries: eclipsing - Galaxy: bulge - stars: statistics - surveys Abstract: We have developed a fully automated pipeline for systematically identifying and analyzing eclipsing binaries within large data sets of light curves. The pipeline is made up of multiple tiers that subject the light curves to increasing levels of scrutiny. After each tier, light curves that did not conform to a given criteria were filtered out of the pipeline, reducing the load on the following, more computationally intensive tiers. As a central component of the pipeline, we created the fully automated Detached Eclipsing Binary Light curve fitter (DEBiL), which rapidly fits large numbers of light curves to a simple model. Using the results of DEBiL, light curves of interest can be flagged for follow-up analysis. As a test case, we analyzed the 218,699 light curves within the bulge fields of the OGLE II survey and produced 10,862 model fits. We point out a small number of extreme examples, as well as unexpected structure found in several of the population distributions. We expect this approach to become increasingly important as light-curve data sets continue growing in both size and number. File Summary:

Note (1): -1000 indicates non-converged parameter. Note (2): Heliocentric Julian date, minus 2450000.0, phased by the period. Note (3): Parabolic fit within a sliding window. Note (4): Position of chi2 between chi2avr and chi22nd; see paper appendix Note (5): In sigma. Note (6): Waviness - special case of the scatter score. Here, we consider only data points in the light curve's plateau (i.e., the region in the phased curve between the eclipsing dips, where both stars are fully exposed). The waviness score is the scatter score of these data points around their median. Note (7): Scatter score is defined as <ΔXi-1ΔXi>/<ΔXi2> Note (8): Mean density: (M1+M2)/((4π/3)(R13+R23) Note (9): Maximum density: (M1+M2)/(4π/3)R23 Note (10): -1000 indicates missing data. Note (11): We unraveled the geometric selection effects by weighting each eclipsing light curve by the inverse of the probability of observing it as eclipsing. For example, if with a random orientation there is a 1% chance of a given binary system's being seen as eclipsing, we will give it a weight of 100 (see Section 5.1 of paper).
